Ficus Tree Outdoors

Anonymous added on December 7, 2014 | Answered

What is the lowest temperature that a ficus tree outdoors can handle? If branches feel rubbery, is it dying? If left outdoors at 30 degrees, will it die? Please help.

Ficus trees are considered tropical plants; the usual suggestion is that they shouldn't be subjected to temps lower than 45F. However, in Florida where I live, I've found that they can take a few hours in the upper 30's, although they might sustain some damage. But more than an hour or two at freezing or below will usually kill them.
