What to do with growing Ficus?
I have a 5 year old ficus that is quite full and about 4 1/2 feet high. It gets direct sunlight about 6 hours a day and I water it once a week or when dry.
It's grown so tall that it's starting to lean to one side. I turned it so that the sun exposure was even so it's leaning is not extreme but it will become so soon.
Should I put a stake in for support as you would a tomato plant? Tie with string or does it need something special.
I'd appreciate advice as this is one of three houseplants that I haven't killed in a month.
