Ficus tree indoor leaves not returned

Zone UK | Anonymous added on May 3, 2019 | Answered

I repotted my plant after it lost all its leaves. It has lost all its leaves before but alway rebudded after a few days. Now it's been over 2 month and no signs of regrowth, and the ends look dried up although there is 1 shoot on its own with leaves. Very strange. I took a scrape from the bark and this is light green, which indicates life. How can I fix it?

Try breaking the branches; if they are dead, they will snap. If they bend without breaking, they may still be alive.
Ficus are very fussy about being moved and even more unhappy with repotting.
Unfortunately you may have lost the plant, but wait it out a bit more and do not move the plant.
