Young ficus benjamina is recommended to repot at least once per year by handling. Capacity should be slightly larger than the previous one, but in some case not just at large. It is advisable to transplant the ficus in the spring, in late February – early March. Plants older than four years should be transplanted every two or three years in a pot slightly larger in diameter than the previous (approximately 3 cm). Very old plants enough to replant every five years.
If the ficus Benjamin is huge and growing in the tub, with a diameter of not less than 30 inches, in this case, there is the question of how to replant this plant. A ficus tree not transplanted, but every year change the top layer of soil (three inches) on new and add 20% fertilizer (organic).
If a clod of earth is almost completely braided roots, quickly dries the soil after watering and the roots of ficus peeking out of drainage holes, in this case, it is time to begin transplanting plants. On the bottom of the prepared pot put a layer of expanded clay and 1.5 – 2 cm.
Place in new pot plant together with the old earth. Sprinkle ficus on the sides and top of the prepared soil. If you decide to prepare the ground on their own, mix one part humus, one part leaf soil and one part peat lands. For friability, you can add one part river sand. Install a ficus in a pot and fill the prepared substrate.
As we all know, transplant is a kind of stress for plants, so in the first month after transplant, you may experience defoliation and yellowing of leaves. In this case, reduce watering or replace it with sprinkles. Watering only after the soil is completely dry. Six months after the transplant can make the dressing.
