Ficus in general loose their leaves as a way of showing stress-change in temp., breeze from an outside door that is opened and closed regularly, under watered, breeze from air/heat vent are all typical reasons they drop leaves.

  If you mean the "ficus benjamina", you're doing just fine.  LOL...that's one of it's traits.  The ficus tree is notorious for going bald on you!  Just keep it in the same place...ficus trees hate to be moved.

  I finally wound up trimming back all the bald sticks so that the new growth could develop on mine.  I moved her outside onto my porch, and I'll bet I have a show stopper in a couple of years.  Errr...until I have to take her back inside this winter, and I imagine the whole process will repeat itself.  e.t.
