Type: Plastic Nursery Pot
Size: 6 Inch Diameter
Light: Provide bright, indirect sunlight for your Fiddle Leaf Fig. It thrives in ample light but should be shielded from direct sunlight, which can scorch its leaves. Rotate the plant occasionally to ensure even growth.
Temperature: Maintain a consistent room temperature between 65-75°F (18-24°C). Avoid exposing the plant to cold drafts, sudden temperature fluctuations, or temperatures below 50°F (10°C).
Watering: Allow the top 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) of the soil to dry out between waterings. Water your Fiddle Leaf Fig thoroughly but be cautious not to overwater. Ensure proper drainage, and empty the saucer beneath the pot to prevent root rot.
Humidity: Ficus lyrata appreciates higher humidity levels. Increase humidity by misting the plant regularly, using a humidity tray, or placing a humidifier nearby, especially in dry indoor environments.
Soil: Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix. A mix designed for tropical plants or indoor trees is suitable.
Fertilization: Feed your Fiddle Leaf Fig with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid over-fertilizing, as it can damage the roots.
Pruning: Prune your plant to maintain its desired shape and remove any damaged or dead leaves. Be cautious when pruning, as Ficus lyrata can be sensitive to changes.
Repotting: Repot your Fiddle Leaf Fig when it becomes root-bound or outgrows its container, typically every 2-3 years. Choose a slightly larger pot with proper drainage.
Pests: Keep an eye out for common indoor plant pests like spider mites and mealybugs. Inspect your plant regularly and treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
Support: Ficus lyrata can grow tall and may benefit from staking or support as it matures to maintain an upright shape.
