Answer: Ficus repens, also known as Creeping Fig, has thin heart-shaped leaves and thin wiry stems. It's normal for some of the leaves to dry up during a short adjustment period, but your plants sound like they're not happy in their new locations. Trailing types of ficus are fussy about their surroundings and require moist air and moist soil. They prefer low-light conditions so a sunny window isn't suitable for them. They'll grow well in average household temperatures (minimum 55F degrees), and prefer tepid, not cold water. It's essential that you mist the leaves to increase the humidity around the plants, and keep the soil moist. Why not move your plants away from the window, mist the leaves every morning, and make sure they're well-watered. The plants should perk up in a few weeks and thrive.
