Twist the leaves of the ficus
Twist the leaves of the ficus
- There can be many reasons for this. To eliminate the disease, you should carefully study the twisted leaf for specks and irregularities. If they are, then most likely your ficus has caught a tick. To cure the plant, it must be rinsed in soapy water and sprinkled with a concentrated soap solution every day. If there are no spots on the leaves, there are several options. The ficus is curled leaves most often because of drying or overmoistening. Try to shove a pot into the ground with a finger finger to the middle. If the Earth is completely dry, then your plant does not have enough moisture, if after the first phalanx water is observed, it is worth less watering the plant. Ficus is also very fond of drafts and movements. The plant very much does not like open air and frequent movement from one place to another.
- I have such a problem ... And like watering in moderation ... Already completely changed my mind .. What is this, do not tell me?
- Dry air, probably. The heating season has begun. Sprayed with a little water?
- It's from dry air. It is necessary to increase the humidity of the air: put the pot on a pallet with moist pebbles, cover the soil in a pot with wet moss, put a container with water next to it, sprinkle.
Another reason can be the presence of a pest - spider mite.

The leaves fold and fall
The edges of the leaves twist, and sometimes become dry. Twisting of leaves in plants is a measure of self-defense, because due to this, the surface of the leaf shrinks and less water evaporates from it. This happens when the plant is in a warm place or receives little water. It is necessary to water the plant until the soil is completely soaked, or dip into the water and hold it. Choose a cooler place for him.

Important little things
To avoid waterlogging the soil: If water remains in the pan after watering, it must be drained. In winter, water less often than in spring and summer. The pot is well drained. If there is no claydite, then put the broken red brick - it collects superfluous water well. Add bits of birch coals to the soil - they inhibit rotting processes. Growth Problems
New leaves are tiny, old ones turn yellow and fall off - the plant lacks nutrients, it needs to be transplanted into nutrient soil.
Yellow leaves appear on the leaves, or the edges of the leaves turn yellow, the leaves fall prematurely - with excessive watering, irrigation should be moderate, ie, the soil must be able to dry out.
Also, with excessive watering, leaves droop become lifeless and fall off.
Dry shriveled leaves of ficuses - often in ampel forms - too dry air, soil drying, sunburn.
Sudden dropping of leaves - in different species can be caused by different reasons - waterlogging of the ficus of rubber and lycophyllous, lack of light or a sharp change in climate in the fennel of Benjamin; also this phenomenon can be caused by watering with cold water, low temperature in the room, lack of light, excess nutrients in the soil or cold draft.
Good results in such cases give spraying with a solution of "Epin".
Falling of the lower leaves - It is believed that the fall of the lower leaves in tree-shaped ficus forms is a natural phenomenon (very typical for ficuses in indoor conditions), but this is not entirely true, the lower leaves naturally fall off occasionally upon aging, but the trunk, however, is not should be completely bare. Barrel extinction occurs due to untimely transplantation, transplantation to poor soil, lack of fertilizing, violation of temperature and light conditions.
Brown spots on the tips and edges of the leaves - If the temperature is too high in the room, dry air or when overfeeding fertilizers.
Soil drying is dangerous for the figurine of lyrate and ficus pygmy. If you forget them while pouring the leaves and shoots dry. Pests of Ficus
Most often, figs are susceptible to attack:
Shields: brown plaques on the surface of leaves and stems, suck out the cell sap. The leaves lose color, dry and fall off.
Control measures. For mechanical cleaning of pests, the leaves are wiped with a soapy sponge. Then the plant is sprayed with 0,15% solution of the actinic (1-2 ml per liter of water).
Spider mite: appears with too dry air - in interstices on the stems appears spider web, the leaves become sluggish and fall off.
Control measures. Wipe the plant with a soapy sponge and wash under a warm shower. Spray regularly. With a very strong lesion, the ficus can be sprayed with 0,15% solution of the actinic (1-2 ml per liter of water).
Thrips - the appearance contributes to high temperature and low air humidity.
On the underside of the leaf, thrips postpone numerous colonies, and light points appear on the upper side of the leaf. As a result, the upper side of the leaf becomes greyish-brown with a silvery sheen.
Control measures. The plant should be sprayed, if necessary, repeatedly with insecticides (phytoverm, decis, actellic, inta-vir).
All the best to you!
