Hi everyone,

I was recently gifted a ficus ginseng by my sister, and I would love some tips on what to do next! The tree has a quite a few green leaves and the pot does not appear to have drainage holes. I'm conscious that I'm in the UK and it's pretty cold, but I do have a south facing window I could place her!

Thank you!!!

Hi partysaurus
Drainholes are necessary, are you or somebody else able ... to drill some holes at the bottom at the pot ?
Remome careful your Ficus with roots and complete soil, drill some small holes (3-4mm) with a Widiadrill , then repotted ore repotted in a similar size pot with drainholes.
Located bright as possible (your south faced window is perfect) and watered a bit less in the winterseason.
