Mallsai Ficus

Post  chadley999 on Mon Apr 14, 2014 2:26 am

I bought this tree about a week ago, I think its a Retusa. As soon as i brought it home i removed the rocks glued to the soil surface and re-potted it out of the heavy potting soil. Since i have transplanted it, it's only lost a few leaves. I also noticed that there was very few roots. Anyone got any pointers on after care? Should i put it under my light, or on the heat pad, or in a humidity dome, or all three? I've read they are very resilient, and i'm hoping it will bounce back in the next few months and put on some new foliage.

And yes.

I can't think of a fig that like wet feet.
