How to use the Ficus Soil Mix

Using the mix is easy!  start with removing as much of the old soil as possible. Gently squeeze the pot while holding it sideways to loosen up the plant. Run the roots under lukewarm tap water to remove the last pieces and bits. 

Also, make sure to remove any dead foliage that may still be on the plant using scissors. Now your plant is ready for its fresh Ficus soil. Add a small layer of Ficus mix at the bottom of the pot.

Place the plant in the pot, and slowly add Ficus soil to the sides to fill it up. Make sure that the point where the roots meet the plant is just buried under the Ficus soil. 

Lightly pat the Ficus mix down into the pot. Make sure to water the Ficus mix thoroughly after repotting, as this helps settle the mix and roots down.

Why the Ficus mix works. 

Ficus usually have large, bulky roots. The extra husk and perlite give the roots the space they need. Added activated carbon detoxifies the roots from rot and mould problems. Combine this with extra added horticultural sand for a denser and better draining mix and you have yourself the perfect Ficus mix. 

    The original habitat of the Ficus plants

    The ficus contains a large number of species ranging from shrubs to vines & trees. Most of these are native to the tropical areas of East Asia. They are commonly referred to as figs. The ficus comes from a substrate that drains relatively quickly, the environment however is usually moist. This ficus mix mimics that environment

    How to care for Ficus plants

    Most ficus plants enjoy bright light, however, watch out for direct sunlight as that can burn their leaves. Most ficus also cannot take low temperatures or cold winds. Be sure to keep the temperature above 15°C. 

    Ficus prefers relatively high humidity. If you do live in a dry area, be sure to mist your plant every now and then. Do wait for the top of the ficus mix of the plant to dry out before watering again. They do not like to have wet roots. Ficus are rapid growers and require a steady supply of nutrients. 

    The most common issue with Ficus is the loss of leaves, there can be many reasons for this. It is a reaction to stress. The most common reasons include over- and underwatering of the ficus mix, low humidity and too little light. Try to place your ficus in a brighter spot and spray it down if leaves do drop off.

          At Sybotanica we not only want to make plants happy, but people happy as well. In our production team we exclusively hire people with a distance from the workforce, and help them rehabilitate to the normal working life.


          Take Peter for example:

          Peter has been with Sybotanica since the 1st hour, and has now been promoted to head of production & a permanent contract! Where he was the first employee, he now manages a team of 3 production workers.

          What makes this achievement even more impressive is that Peter achieved all this with only 10% visibility! 🕶️ With a few minor adjustments to his working environment, Peter is able to perform his job 100%.

          Peter has now been through two moves and knows all the ins & outs of Sybotanica. He can even feel by the potting soil which variety it is. That's quite a challenge with 16 different mixes!

          We are confident that Peter will keep production running smoothly in the coming years too! 💪

                      FAQ's

                      Not sure if the Ficus mix is right for your plant?

                      Check out the SYBASoil Guide

                      How much Ficus mix do I need?

                      Check out this pot volume calculator tool to calculate how much Ficus mix you need.

                      When do I need to re-feed the soil?

                      The nutrients in SYBASoil will run out in ~6 months on average. We recommend refeeding by removing the top part of the soil and adding 10-20% of the volume with fresh worm castings.

                      How long does SYBASoil stay fresh?

                      You can store SYBASoil for about 2 years. Make sure to store it cool, dark and closed off. The effectiveness of the nutrients can degrade over the years. Simply add some fresh worm castings to give the soil new life.

                      When do I repot the plant?

                      We recommend repotting once any of these things happen:
                      - You see roots growing out of the bottom of the pot
                      - The soil dries very quickly between watering
                      - The plant is top-heavy and wants to fall over
                      - Roots are pushing the plant up and out of the container
                      - Every 1 to 2 years

                      How to recycle SYBASoil packaging

                      Our packaging can be recycled at your local plastic recycling facility.

                      You can also re-use it for storage, or leave a little soil and use it as a propagation box!

                      How to water plants grown on the Ficus mix

                      Water the soil only when the top 2-3cm of the soil is dried out. You can test this out by poking your finger in the soil to feel around.

                      It is fine to let it dry out a bit more sometimes if you forget it as the deeper soil will retain moisture for longer. This will also help the roots to grow deeper.
