Properties and uses:
The Ficus Long-leaf fig is a superb Ficus which has dropping, long ,sabre-shaped leaves. Particularly resistant, it will withstand spots away from windows. However, make sure to give it regular watering !

Looking after advice:

- Although it can be placed away from windows, your Ficus likes bright places. Nevertheless, avoid placing it behind a window which is exposed to the sun rays over a long time during the day so as not to burn its foliage.
- Your Ficus will adapt itself to rooms heated at 15°C to 22°C. When the outdoor temperature allows it, you can place you Ficus outside on the terrace.

- Water it in moderation, especially during winter. A good pointer is to wait for the soil’s surface to dry out between two watering.
- Prefer non-calcareous water (distilled, soft water).
- When it is hot, do not hesitate to spray a mist of water on its foliage.
- Give it liquid fertiliser every fortnight from March to October.

Why are the leaves of my Ficus falling ?
This usually happens when you have changed its place or when it is placed near draught. The Ficus is extremely sensitive to temperature changes. An excess, or a lack of water can also be at the origin of this loss of leaves.

Why are the leaves of my Ficus becoming yellow ?
As often, this is the sign of excessive watering which results in the roots asphyxia of your Ficus.
