I don't remember the name of this right now but I'm sure some of you will reconise it. It's been on the decline lately and I don't know what to do from here.

Common Ficus hate to be moved and don't like strong light. Just place it someplace with indirect light and water every five days and don't mess with it. If you jar it around or move it too much it will drop its leaves. They'll come back next growing season though.

if thats where its at you may want to move it to more light.  they can burn easyish but in my experience they love lots of light.  their roots are quite sensative but i find everything above ground is pretty hardy.  i just moved a small one onto a brance and tried to train its roots to hang over and down off it.  it lost all its leaves in 3 days and started to shrivle.  now 1 week later every branch has small leaves on ot again. 

very neat but sometimes tempermental species.

lol, i thought i was the only one to put toilet paper rolls in ziplocks.  ahhh to have dry ass wipes in the bush :smile:

I just moved it in there for a pic, my camping gear from the Dead tour hitting the midwest is still scatter all over my house :grin:  All good bushman know to keep the asswipes dry :tongue2:

Where my tree is now gets a few good hours of direct sunlight in the morning and indirect until dusk.  I used to have it right in a window where it got 5-6 good hours of direct but I think that might of been to hot for her there, I started moving all over when I notice it dropping a few leaves, then it started to drop alot more.. Rediculous impatience, I'm new at this, let's hope I learn.

I could be wrong(not a plant expert by any means), but it looks like it might also be time for a bigger pot.

I thought about that but the morons at the local nursery said it would be fine for a year in that one(they really don't have a good name in the area). I think I'm going to talk to an aunt and see what she thinks. Any info/tips on repotting would nice also.

A lot of houseplants enjoy or even rely on being rootbound
Not sure if ficus is one of them though..

Hmm yeah, apparently they do
