I have just bought a new house and inherited some plants. One of which is a beautiful 5 foot tall Ficus binnendijkii.
We have recently moved the plant into the corner of our bedroom. It is not in direct sunlight and actually gets very little sunlight. It is next to a window but is not drafty.
However, it's losing several leaves a day (there is also new growth).
Some of the lost leaves look perfectly healthy. Long, green and shiny. Others are withered, grey and twisted.
I think initially I over watered it, but now I'm more sparse.
I have bought a water meter to try and gage the wetness of the soil, but on a scale of 1 to 10 I'm not sure how moist this plant should be kept or why it's losing its leaves.
Can anyone advise?
It's a beautiful plant and I would hate to lose it.
