But this species should have been full of leaves and new shoots by now.
Can you pls tell what soil mixture you have used?

the mixture is
compost 40
gravel 40
coconut husk 20
and sand...
you told me that this soil mixture is not recomended for ficus,as i have repoted them a year ago so i will replace the soil in next repotting in spring.

I was just wondering that with a change in the potting mix, the growth will be much better; important thing is very good drainage, which would encourage good roots and eventually will result in very good foliage. But as you plan to repot next spring, it's quite OK.

By the way, what is the day temperature there?

Here it is very hot, almost 38 deg Celius during the day, which is good for Ficus varieties.

thanks shaukat,
the normal temp here in gujranwala is 40 C plus even touched 45C.
the drainage is very good in media ,there are also new growth of feeder roots but still plant is missing something...... probably the some ratio of gardening soil ?

40 deg C+? That's really very hot....
you are right, perhaps the coconut husk should be replaced with good garden soil.

Regards,
