Problems with my indoor ficus plant.
The stems on my ficus are starting to shrivel up and is no longer producing leaves, is there anything i can do to get it healthy again?
Thanks for writing. Unfortunately, without being able to see your plant and where it's growing, I can't say for sure what the problem is or how to treat it. This free service really isn't meant to diagnose plant issues like this because it is so important to see what's going on. That said, the first thing I'd check for is soil moisture --- make sure it's not too wet (roots suffocate and die; the leaves will follow) or dry (leaves shrivel because there's not enough moisture). Also make sure the plant hasn't been exposed to any hot or cold drafts or chemicals which may have harmed it.
