Ficus 'Tineke' Care Guide

  1. Watering: Ficus 'Tineke' prefers soil that is consistently moist but not soggy. Water your plant when the top inch of soil feels dry, typically once a week. However, adjust the frequency depending on the season and humidity levels in your area.
  2. Light: Bright, indirect light is ideal. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.
  3. Temperature: A consistent temperature between 16-24°C is ideal. Avoid placing it near drafty windows or heating vents.
  4. Soil: A well-draining potting mix is suitable. You can add perlite or sand to improve drainage.
  5. Additional Tips: Regularly clean the leaves to prevent dust buildup, which can hinder growth.

Begonia Care Guide

  1. Watering: Allow the topsoil to dry out slightly between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot.

  3. Humidity: Begonias enjoy high humidity. Consider placing them on a pebble tray or using a humidifier.
  4. Soil: Use a light, well-draining potting mix rich in organic matter.
  5. Feeding: Fertilize every two weeks during the growing season with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.
