Q.Ficus Benjamin – Drainage Wholes
We bought a bigger pot for our Ficus Benjamin. Enclosed a picture of the whole. Do we need to drill more wholes?

If your soil is correct and allows proper drainage, then a bigger hole will not be necessary. However, if your soil is not of good quality you may find the need to add drainage. That, single, drain hole should be plenty.
Most importantly, just make sure that the container is no larger than 2 or 3 inches on all sides (up to 4 is ok but I don't recommend it), compared to the current container. Potting up much larger than that at any time for these slow growing trees will often lead to overwatering and root rot.
