The Q&A Archives: Ficus Leaves Falling Off

Question: I've had a big indoor ficus plant for years. All the leaves are falling off ... What should I do now? Emile M. Desmet Meise - Belgium

Answer: Your ficus may have problems with the soil. I'd say repot the plant into a larger pot or the same pot just cleaned out. Use fresh, potting soil and add a bit of time release fertilizer into the soil. Keep it watered and given partial sun and hopefullyit will grow back.
