My ficus tree keeps losing its leaves. It's been repotted and potting soil with nutrients has been added.
-is this normal for it to lose leaves at this rate (branches are almost bare)?
-what is an appropriate amount to water it?
-what kind of light might it need?

Many of the leaves are also withered and discolored.

house is very dry during the heating season, you might also consider raising the humidity level around the plant by setting the pot on a pebble tray (a tray of pebbles and water, set the pot on the pebbles and keep the water level just below the bottom of the pot) or possibly running a humidifier.
