Someone in our house put a ficus benjamina onto a staircase, which basically means 'thrown away'. The tree is in moderate or poor condition. I think it will not have enough light in this place (there is only a small window to the east), the pot is apparently too small for a tree of that size, so I'm considering taking it to my flat. It is currently about 150-170 cm in height. The tree looks healthy, but there's not much foliage on it.
Is it possible to make it more dense, bushy and good looking?
How much should I prune out of it in case of pruning?
What is an optimal pot size for a tree like this?
Any advice for a good care and rejuvenation is welcome. Thanks!
Update: The tree does not have any signs of scale infestation on leaves, so I brought it home. I turned the plant out of the pot and figured out that it was not pot bounded at all, root system was weak compared to my smaller ficus. I decided to keep it in its own pot for now. Its size is around 8-9 liters (25 cm in diameter, 23 cm in depth). Do I need a larger one later? Tree height is 160 cm.
