Q.Ficus Plant Losing Leaves

Anonymous added on January 18, 2011 | Answered

I have a ‘money tree’ in a pot and it is growing new leaves, but some of the leaves have yellowed and fallen off. Am I doing something wrong? Does it need a bigger pot?

Some leaf loss from ficus is normal, especially in the winter. If you think that yours is shedding too many leaves, it may be an issue with humidity or watering. Make sure the plant is getting enough water and also check to make sure that it does not have root rot. A humidifier in the room will help increase humidity.
