Irrigation Ficus nitidaTenere asciutto
Let's remember to empty the plant saucers after watering, to avoid that stagnant water could damage the roots. Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 1-2 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 2-3 glasses of water .

Care 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.

Temperatures Ficus nitidaSole pieno
Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of 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.The Ficus nitida can bear minimum temperatures a few degrees below zero; in general during the Spring it would be grown outdoors without any problems, but if the harsh temperatures should go down it is advised to cover it with non-woven fabric.

Adversity Ficus nitida
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.
