Ficus

Origin

The origin of the ficus is Africa, South America and the south of the US. The Ficus belongs to the family Moreaceae or Moerbei.

Water tax

In general, moderate watering, during the growing period which runs from March to August, is slightly more like winter. You can allow the soil to dry out before watering again. However, do not leave the roots in the water, causing root rot.

Substrate

If the pot is provided (or you provide it yourself) from a substrate and a water meter, watering is easy! On arrival, there is little water, fill the pot slowly with water (sometimes wait) and you will see that the meter goes up automatically. All you have to do is keep an eye on this meter. If you go on vacation, you can fill the pot almost half full (this is what you see at the meter that will end up above its maximum) and you can rest 3 weeks away. In addition, it does not matter if the plants do not get too much and water too fast. The substrate absorbs the water, so if the water meter is underneath the substrate is still moist, but there is no water left underneath the pot. The plant still has enough space for 4 summer days.

Spraying

Regularly spraying the Ficus to remove dust from the leaves and prevent spine is therefore recommended.

Pitch

The Ficus likes to be in a light spot and requires at least 4 to 5 hours of sunlight a day. With a window to the south, the ficus can be placed two to three meters from the window. They plant within one meter of a window on the East, West and North. If the Ficus is too dark you are more likely to fall on leaf and grow new leaflet more difficult.

Minimum temperature

During the day 18 ° C

at night 15 ° C

Nutrition

The Ficus does not need much nutrition. After purchase, Ficus can still have months without food. Feeding only in spring or summer. Never give too much this can lead to burning of the roots. Look at the package for the correct dose.

Overpoten

A Ficus is best suited to sprinkle into a larger pot in two years. The best period for overprotection is spring or immediately after the plant has been purchased. A larger pot will stimulate growth and the advantage is a larger buffer soil which makes the water more dispersed and there is less chance of root rot. Always take a pot that is 20 to 25% larger and do not use Hydro grains on the bottom of the pot. It is best to use plastic insethoes with large pots.

Bladder damage

If you move a Ficus or there is too little light, the plant will lose leaf. Even when buying in winter, there is a chance here. Therefore, place the room plant in the winter period closer to a window. In spring, the Ficus will restore "in good care" and thus create a new magazine.

If the ficus gets a yellow leaf while you care for it as always, then maybe give some new food.

Prune

A ficus is a relatively fast grower and you can therefore prune every autumn. The advantage of this is that the plant receives more light, stays more compact and you will not get long fins. The Ficus lyrata is a strange duck in the bite. You can do this living plant in late spring pruning (May-June). The reason for this is that the Lyrata needs more power to walk out. The Ficus lyrata will branch "at every branch where he is pruned." This gives you a beautiful full room or office plant. Use a pruning sheath and cover the wounds with cigarette ashes to pin the bleeding of the houseplants.

Toxic

The ficus is a poisonous plant. If you come into contact with the white milk juice, this may irritate the skin. The eating of the leaves by children and pets can cause buttocks on the skin.

The Ficus is a versatile plant that occurs in many variations.
