ficus leaves are falling

I recently moved my ficus tree inside and the leaves are falling more and more by the day. I know they they don't like to be moved but I thought it would level out by now. What can I do?

Ficus are notorious for acting like this. Your plant is trying to balance it's leaf load with the new light levels in your home. It should eventually stop, but your plant may look pretty unsightly until next spring. All you can do is give it as much light as possible indoors. Ficus can be really frustrating to deal with.
