I’ve had this for a few years now, the first plant I ever owned. It’s always looked this sparse, new leaves grow occasionally, but it also seems to shed at a similar rate. Any tips to encourage some more foliage?

They lovvvvvve light and may want a slight bigger pot. Also any empty branches, I’d cut off. Monthly fertilizing would be good too

@jcPlantProper Brilliant, thank you! I’ve moved it this morning, definitely wasn’t getting enough light.
@jcPlantProper Helped me as well, thank you.
@Jawad can we see an update? 🤗
@jcPlantProper surprisingly, I have actually gotten the ficus ginseng plants yesterday whilst at a plant shop as it looked absolutely stunning, this would be the temporary placement as more things are on the way however please point out if I’m doing anything wrong, thanks!
Ooo looks good!

@jcPlantProper I moved Freddie to a room with better light. Can’t believe the difference in just a month! So much new growth and he hasn’t lost a leaf since.
@RaeB j love this! Nice !
