Water regularly, but always wait for at least the top layer of the substrate to dry. Ficuses do not tolerate overflowing and standing in water. During the winter, water less and beware of cold water, rather use water at room temperature.
Overwatering and waterlogging, root rot: Most often, you can recognize a ficus that has been overwatered by the fact that its leaves begin to fall, which can also turn yellow or develop brown spots.
Draft: Ficuses are sensitive to temperature changes. You can tell that the plant has suffered a temperature shock by the leaves, which turn brown and fall off.
Change of environment: Ficuses do not tolerate changes (e.g. habitat) well. Therefore, always think carefully about where and when you will move the ficus. The plant reacts to new, unsuitable conditions by shedding leaves.
Burns of the leaves: Beware of direct light, which can burn the leaves of the plant with brown spots if exposed for a long time.
