Q.Is this houseplant a ficus? Why might it’s leaves be browning and falling off?

Zone London UK | Anonymous added on May 16, 2020 | Answered

Hello, I inherited this houseplant and am wondering whether it is a Longleaf fig (ficus binnendijkii)? Might you know please?

Secondly, the houseplant has been shedding leaves some of which are browning. Do you know what I should do to prevent this? I saw your article by Tonya Barnett and am doing most of what the article says I should be doing. The plant is now about 5 foot (167cm). I have feeding it with Baby bio plant food.

I would love to hear what your thoughts are?

Thank you. Kind regards
