Although initially thought to be water damage on this ficus tree, the evidence points in another direction. On today’s episode of the Pestgeek podcast, we are inspecting a Green Island Ficus on a Miami property with exposure to sun all day long. Having tested this irrigation system we find a stressed green island ficus. When a ficus tree is losing leaves and turning yellow, it is due to a lack of water. In fact, having experienced a month long draught with temperatures of 80s and 90s, the irrigation system was still adjusted to winter. Consequently, we find evidence of draught stress. Although there has been a tropical storm and some rain in the past month, this does not make a major difference as plants do not recover in just 30 days. Once a plant gets stressed, it will continue to get stressed. In addition to this, this zone is adjacent to a zone that is in full shade which presents another problem for an optimum irrigation system.
