Your ficus can take direct sunlight, although it will burn the leaves once you take it straight into the sun (Like human skin, really). You need to give the plant time to get used to sun. Water well, never let them dry out completely while it is warm. And as it grows you fertilize.

Never water while soil still feels wet, just to add to Leatherback post.
