Watering Ficus nitidaTenere asciutto
Let's remember to empty the plant saucers after watering, to avoid that stagnant water could damage the roots. Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down.

Generalities Ficus nitida
These plants have an erect development; in the lower part they usually show a bare stem, while towards the top they widen to form the crown. The Ficus nitida Is medium in size; in spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a green colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. The Ficus nitida develops in an erect manner and, as the years go by, becomes a tree.

The Ficus nitida should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. Let's position the plants where they can enjoy a good source of light,yet avoiding direct sunshine, which could cause antiaesthetic burnings on the foliage.These plants don't agree with cold temperatures during this time of year. They can be grown outside.

Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
