Ficus can be attributed to the most common indoor plants. He has many varieties, but no matter what kind of ficus you grow (be it “Kauchukonosny”, “Benjamin” or any other), there is a set of certain general requirements that apply to all varieties of this plant. And, just in case of non-observance of some of them, leaves are beginning to turn black at the ficus. This ultimately leads to their complete drying, which means that such leaves will eventually fall off, and you will definitely not be able to save them. That is, your task is to completely eliminate these errors in order to prevent blackening of the leaves on the plant.
If the ficus blacken leaves. What can be done?
Improper care, this is a 100 percent cause of blackening of the leaves. Maybe you put the pot with the plant in the wrong place where drafts literally walk, or you have over-moistened the soil, or the plant simply does not have enough light (this reason is most characteristic of winter), or, conversely, the sun’s rays fall on it directly , that is, the light is not scattered. All of these simple causes can cause ficus disease, and hence the leaves it may well turn black.
Another, more obvious reason, in this case, is the lack of moisture in the room, that is, the air is just too dry. In winter, it is often found when heating is at full capacity. If the ficus is very close to the radiators, then it is difficult for him to breathe in such dry air, and the leaves begin to turn black.
Find another place for ficus, where there is enough light, and spray its leaves with warm water every day.
It happens that we make some mistakes when watering. If we talk about ficuses, then the correctness of this process can be successfully controlled. Find a twig about a centimeter in diameter and remove the bark from it. When watering, first check the condition of the soil in the pot. Stick a sprig into the soil a centimeter 2-3, there turn it a couple of times. When you extract a branch from the ground, it should be clean. And, here, if wet ground remained on it, then the ficus does not need watering yet.
After ficus you watered abundantly, give the soil a chance to dry. So ficus will breathe easier.If you continue to flood the plant with water, then its roots will definitely begin to rot. This is also one of the reasons for the formation of black spots on its leaves.
Do not make mistakes when caring for the ficus, and then his leaves will not turn black and fall off.
