Answer: Sometimes a ficus will lose its leaves in shock right after a move. If this is the case, it should regrow new leaves shortly if you keep on caring for it. Other times a ficus may defoliate due to an insect problem such as spider mites. In this case you should see small webbing and tiny insects on the undersides of the leaves and possibly along the twigs. Insecticidal soap should take care of that problem, used according to label instructions. Be sure to dispose of all the fallen leaves. In the meantime be careful to keep the plant in bright light, keep the soil moist but not soaking wet, and keep it out of drafts. I hope it comes back for you.
