Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Looks really good [thumb] , I've wanted a ficus benjamina for quite a while---I just don't know where I'd put it. I have several big plants as it is. [Roll Eyes]

I have three myself, unfortunately lost the forth to over-watering. [Eek!]

$6 ?????
Where in the world did you get it????
What a deal !
I love ficus too, and had an 8 footer for years.
My tip-once it lives in a particular spot, don't move it like when you're rearranging furniture.
It can stress and lose the leaves. They really are fussy about changes.
Also, ficus really likes bright light.
They grow here indoors or out.

I got it at my local hardware store. It was marked down, "end of the Season clearance." I bought quite a few plants and planters. Mainly for outside, but a few houseplants. I'll take some more pictures and post them.

Thanks for the advice on ficus. I've never had one before, so I hope it will be fine. The spot I have it in doesn't get morning sun light, but does get filtered afternoon sun. I'll keep you posted [Smile]
