Ficus Tree

Posted by Kelly , May 25,2005,00:20       Forum

I am located in Chicago, IL and have a Ficus tree that was doing great until just recently. It's dropping a ton of leave and almost looks as if it's dying on me. The soil isn't overly wet and I water it maybe 2 a month. It's about 5' tall and I would love to keep it around. I fear moving it outside for more light (it only gets indirectional) because of the crazy Chicago weather and the dropping of all of the leaves. Most of the leaves that are dropping are green and look extremely healthy other than they are dropping. Any suggestions on bringing this tree back to health?

Thanks in advance,
