Ficus Umbellata requires bright, indirect light. They can tolerate a few hours of direct sunlight each day. Don’t move these plants around much. They like to have time to adapt to their environment.
Allow the soil to dry at least 3″ before watering. These plants like to be drenched in the shower every couple of weeks rather than watering more often with cups. When its cool, you can skip the shower and give a cup of water every month. Mist regularly and also to help with humidity made a bed of pebbles for the pot to sit on. Make sure the water never touches the pot. This plant is sensitive to drought so do not allow to dry out completely.
