How can I rescue a dying ficus tree and feed it correctly?


The leaves have fallen off but the limbs are all green stick to nearly the end of each, and there are many on this 2 foot sad looking Charlie Brown sort of ficus tree. It's in a appropriately sized 12" pot but if it gets to live a while longer (with YOUR help!) I will have to repot it. I think the biggest problem has been a lack of food in the correct proportions for nitrogen, phosphorus, etc. And I also need to know how to prune it correctly for optimal growth, then maintain it so it thrives and reaches it full beautiful potential.
