A thread I was very active on just topped out at 150 posts in the middle of a conversation, so I thought I would continue the post here, for anyone that had questions or comments about Ficus benjamina (weeping fig), Ficus elastica (rubber tree), Ficus lyrata (fiddle-leaf fig), or other Ficus species commonly grown as houseplants. I currently maintain more than 30 Ficus trees covering many species, so I have a fair amount of practical and technical experience with the trees, especially in the areas of pruning, repotting, soil preferences, nutrition, and troubleshooting.
That there were 150 posts to the previous thread indicates readers ARE searching the forum for info on these trees.
