Leaf loss is typically the first sign of stress a ficus tree exhibits, but proper care can help minimize any problems. It is not uncommon for a tree to lose one-quarter of its leaves even after a simple environmental change such as switching rooms, but proper watering and temperature regulation can help mitigate additional stress. If the leaves turn yellow just prior to dropping off, it is a sign of over-watering, while dull leaves may indicate a lack of essential nutrients.

Do rotate your Ficus plant to ensure that all sides get their turn to absorb directional light.

Ficus trees have vigorous root growth and may easily become pot bound. Replanting the tree is easy, and should be done every one to two years depending on its growth. Choose a pot at least two inches wider in diameter than the previous pot to ensure plenty of space for the tree to grow. For many trees, this will need to be done soon after they have been purchased as they are moved to a new home.

Ficus pruning isn't strictly necessary for a ficus tree. However, if it starts to grow out of control, prune each weak branch back to the intersection with a thriving branch (instead of leaving stubs). Some latex dripping from the cuts is normal.

Regular misting or setting the Ficus tree on a pebble tray filled with water is a great way to increase their humidity. But keep in mind that while they like high humidity, they do not like overly wet roots. Therefore, when watering, always check the top of the soil first. If the top of the soil is wet, do not water as this means they have enough moisture. If the top of the soil feels dry to the touch, this indicates that they need water.
