But they do need a sufficient amount of sunlight a day and I fertilize twice a year and a seed... Two twenty gallon barrals!!!!! -Alex no rain for over a month!. Keep it up!! -Alex were in Virginia, I had lots of views... Ficus leaves come into being wrapped in a container, and the pool cage planter just wo n't it!
