      About Fiddle Leaf Fig (Ficus lyrata)

      Care Instructions

      Light Requirements:

      Fiddle Leaf Figs prefer a humid environment. Regular misting or placing a humidifier nearby can help maintain the necessary humidity levels, especially in dry indoor conditions.

      Water Requirements:

      Water the plant thoroughly when the top 3cm of soil feels dry. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so ensure proper drainage and avoid letting the plant sit in standing water. Reduce watering in the winter months.

      Soil Requirements:

      Use a well-draining potting mix rich in organic matter. A mix designed for indoor plants or a blend of potting soil with perlite or peat moss works well.

      Humidity:

      Fiddle Leaf Figs thrive in bright, indirect light. They can tolerate some direct sunlight but be cautious of intense afternoon sun, which can scorch their leaves. An east-facing window is ideal.

      Pro Tip

      Fiddle Leaf Figs are known to lean toward the sun, leading to lopsided growth. To promote well-balanced growth, provide even, consistent light year-round and give your plant a little turn every few waterings.
