what about bob
Elise and I recently adopted a tree for the purpose of adding the pretty, pleasant, warming touch to a home that only delicately placed foliage can accomplish. His name is Bob. Bob is a ficus tree. His previous owner was a little old man also named Bob, who wanted assurance that his ficus was going to a loving home. Anyways, all this to say, although we love Bob (tree-Bob, that is), we probably maybe are not the best plant owners of all time. His leaves are a little droopy, but we haven't lost hope. We think he has every reason to be happy-- his branches are adorned with white Christmas-but-not-Christmas lights, and he also sits next to a beautiful replica of Starry Night.
Which if I was a tree, I think I would like those things, too.
Does anyone know how to take care of ficus trees?
