I recently moved to London three weeks ago and brought with me a Ficus clipping from a tree that my family has moved with for over 20 years.

The clipping was of a leaf which had about two months of root growth and at the time it was looking very healthy.

After the move it has been looking more and more grim.

We have recently moved apartments and made the mistake of leaving it outside overnight and it rained.

We know to keep it in the same spot and not to overwater. We had potted it with fresh soil and have been doing our best but the little guy isn't looking too well. He's got brown spots and seems to be thinning in the middle of the leaf by the stalk.



Are there any suggestions on what to do to help save 'leaf'?

Thank you so much!!!!

So far it looks okay. Did you repot before or after your move?

Newly formed roots on propagated plants are very fragile and easily damaged by repotting, over watering, inadequate light, and exposure to cool temps.
