Extreme Ficus Leaf Loss: Home Edition

Ficus trees are infamous for losing leaves with just the slightest provocation- like experiencing a small draft, being moved, over or under watering… or being in the same room as a viewing of one of those Brendan Frasier Mummy movies. But what can be causing THIS Ficus to loose leaves?

Yes, it IS hard to tell from this cruddy photo that this is a fake Ficus- a fake Ficus that is losing its leaves. Perhaps a little TOO realistic? Real Ficus plants bounce back from leaf loss, I am afraid that this one won’t be doing any bouncing anytime soon! Except when it hits the dumpster…
And no, this wasn’t taken at my house…I don’t "do" fake plants. Do you?
Forum yo.
