Entretien Ficus Tressé

Braided Ficus Maintenance

Very popular and quite robust, it seduces with its elegant and slightly weeping bearing. This hope becomes a large tree in its natural environment.

How do I care for my ficus?

Remove dried shoots and prune to encourage branching.
Cold drafts, sudden temperature changes and heat are the braided ficus' worst enemies! These elements can cause leaf drop. Display it in a bright room, but out of direct sunlight.

How do I water my ficus?

Moderate watering, let the soil dry completely and mist its foliage with non-calcareous water.
Water regularly in spring and summer about once a week and every two weeks in winter.
We advise you to put clay balls at the bottom of the pot when the temperature exceeds 20°C.

When should I repot my ficus?

You canrepot your ficus every year or two with special potting soil for green plants.

How do I take cuttings from my ficus tree?

You can make cuttings from the shoots in spring or summer, then root in water or in a mixture with a light substrate (seeding soil or a mixture of peat and sand).
