Ficus does best in bright light. They will grow long stems if they don’t get enough light. They can be pruned if they get too big and will tend to grow bushier and fuller when pruned. Don’t move these plants around much. They like to have time to adapt to their environment.
These plants are tolerant of inconsistent watering but will do better if watered on a regular schedule. Do not over water! Water only when the soil becomes somewhat dry.
Fertilize once or twice a year in the spring and summer. They can be fertilized more often for faster growth. Just follow the directions on a general-purpose houseplant fertilizer.
