Q.ficus tree indoors

Zone Arizona | Arojo added on June 12, 2013 | Answered

I have a ficus tree indoors and recently added a bit of fresh soil to the top of the pot and I am now seeing a green grass grow on top of the soil. What is this and should I remove it?

Also, if this was potting soil you purchased at a plant store, I would return it, along with some of the sprouted grass. Purchased bagged soil should have been sterilized against weeds, disease, and bugs. You should get your money back, and go to a different store next time.

Sounds like there were weed seeds in the soil. Pull them up by the roots and dispose. Problem solved.
