REDUCING STRESS ON PLANTS

When people are tired and run down they are more likely to become sick because natural defense are weakened. This may also be true with plants.

Common stressors that occur to ficus hedges and trees

  • Include freezing temperatures
  • Poor fertilization practices
  • Over-pruning or shearing
  • And over - or- under- watering

How to prevent stress on Ficus Hedges and trees

  • If shearing can be delayed or reduced more leaves are left on the plants for longer periods of time
  • This means more carbohydrates produced, and therefore more energy will be available for the ficus & trees to combat whiteflies, that are affecting them.
  • Good fertilization helps ensure plants have what they need for health.
  • Be sure to water no more than approximately 1 inch per week, the optimum amount for healthy ficus & trees.
