I've owned this since Apr 1st and most leaves are borwn and are now falling off. This is my 3rd time posting in the community. Any suggestions on saving this plant???
#Ficus
What direction does that window face?
How much light does it get? How often do you water it? Do you let the soil dry out in between waterings?
@RJG South facing window, with blinds. This window faces our sideyard which gets a decent sun but also shade due the homes being on top of eachother
😒 It's a weeping fig and it weeps when it's not getting enough light. Is that the brightest spot in your house?
Ficus love a ton of light. here my gang out on #RJGsPatio. So the more light you can get it the better!
@WickedValkyrie i think this app is telling me 1/2 cup every 4 days. I've checked before to ensure the soil is dry. The pot also has drainage as well
@RJG and @sarahsalith are likely correct then. (They usually are.) Probably wants more light. πŸ–€
@sarahsalith it is the brightest room in house for sure
@grasshopper is there anyway you could add #GrowLights for some supplemental lighting? If you click the hashtag there are a bunch of different options from fully put together grow lights to grow bulbs that can go in ordinary fixtures.
@rjg okie dokie grow light ready
Oh nice! I would slowly introduce it to the light I think. What about you @sarahsalith ? I'm worried cause we're running out of leaves but I don't want to shock it.
@RJG I have that light and it's not a bright light in my opinion. I think the plant would be fine with that light.οΏΌ it's a good intro light. (:οΏΌ
@sarahsalith excellent! Blast it !
