Post  raregog on Wed Mar 19, 2014 3:21 pm

Mature Large leaf ficus,gently sweats a sticky substance, which makes a patch on its stand . this can only be removed
by way of a detergent based product. I do add not from the leaves themselves.
any thoughts or suggestions please ? roger

Without seeing a leaf, I would put my money on a scale problem. I was in the tropical plant business for almost 20 years and ran into this problem almost every week or so in winter.
