Our new beautiful ficus ginseng from Ikea is losing its leaves fast. We try to spray the surface of it’s soil every couple of days, and water it well once per week. We don’t think we’re overwatering it, maybe the opposite.

It’s near a window but never in direct sunlight, and the room isn’t particularly bright. The room is about 20 to 22 degrees, and not humid.

Any ideas of how to save our once beautiful tree?? Perhaps we could buy some growing lights, or change our watering strategy?

Thanks for any suggestions!!

Expect some leaf loss as it adapts to its change in environment. Try to put it right in front of a sunny window. Direct indoor sunlight is fine. A thorough weekly watering should be adequate.
