THE FIDDLE LEAF FIG – #1 HOUSEPLANT THAT’S ALSO GREAT IN YOUR OUTDOOR GARDEN

When it comes to indoor trees, the fiddle leaf fig tree is very popular. The reason why it is so popular and loved by plant lovers is because of its incredible aesthetic features. Having a large fiddle leaf fig tree inside your home means you have a distinct and enormous tree indoors. With heavy veins, stocky stems, and violin-shaped leaves, the tree adds a very prominent aesthetic to your room.

It is advisable for homeowners to place the plant at a spot inside the house where it can grow at least six feet tall. The plant can be potted in any area of the house and at any time of the year. It is important to note that this plant is toxic to dogs and cats.

Caring for your Ficus Lyrata, Fiddle Leaf Fig

Since these plants grow in tropical regions, their optimum growing temperature and condition is warm and moist.

Providing them with optimum wet conditions can be difficult indoors but fortunately, like most ficus, the Fiddle Leaf Fig plant is very resilient and can survive slight temperature variations and low water conditions aw well.

Light

Like most plants and trees native to tropical conditions, the fiddle leaf fig cannot tolerate sunlight at high intensities. Putting the plant under direct sunlight will burn the leaves, even for a short period.

It will grow best in bright, filtered light, but handles low light conditions well. The plant may lose leaves in low light conditions as it adapts.

Soil

The general rule of thumb when preparing and maintaining the soil for the fiddle leaf fig is to choose a plant potting mix that is best for indoor growth.

Another thing that you can do is make sure that the water drains out well. Having excessive moisture within the roots can be detrimental to the plant’s health.

Water

Even though the fiddle leaf fig tree can withstand conditions that deviate from optimum standards, the soil must be moderately moist and allowed to dry in between waterings.

Keeping the water levels in the soil moderate is incredibly important. Over-watering can cause leaves to fall. On the other hand, underwatering will cause the leaves to wilt and lose their luscious green color.

Not to mention, this plant is very sensitive to high amounts of salt in the soil. Make sure to prevent soil buildup in the plant. One way to do that is by flushing water from the top of the soil until it begins to seep from the bottom of the pot.

Doing this once every month is a way you can replace the water in the soil and remove the buildup of soil.

Fertilizer

Fertilizing the fiddle leaf fig tree involves adding nutrient-rich fertilizers during the growing season, which are spring and fall. Over the winters, these plants generally do not require nutrients.

Common Issues

An owner can tell plenty about the problems of a fiddle leaf by looking at the leaves. Any unnecessary spots on the leaf can be an indication that the plant is unhealthy.

The major causes will often range around the sensitivity towards the environment and watering schedule. This plant is vulnerable to fungal and bacterial threats, along with other pests and diseases.

The common indications that make the damage evident for fiddle leaf trees include bleached leaves or brown spots on the leaves. Ultimately, any time the leaves lose their green pigmentation, you can tell that the plant is in dire condition.

Pruning Your Fiddle Leaf

Since this tree can grow rapidly, you will benefit from having the leaves and branches cut every so often. Brown leaves should fall by themselves, be gentle if you pull them off before they fall. To get your plant to branch, prune just above a nodule during the growing season. Fertilizing at the same time will promote branching.

Propagation

The best way to do this is by using stem-cuttings. This is because it is difficult to propagate fiddle leaf trees with seeds.

Potting / Repotting

Replace any loose soil with new indoor potting mix when repotting your plant. Depending on it’s conditions the growth rate can vary and will determine how often your Fiddle Leaf Fig should be repotted.

    Purchased the fiddle leaf fig as a Birthday gift for my Son. Even though it was supposed to be delivered on Saturday, For reasons unknown FedEx didn’t deliver until Tuesday ((It was delayed twice), It arrived looking beautiful. A couple of droopy leaves, but With a little water and sun, hopefully they will bounce back quickly.

    She was pretty.. yet needed a pot size up. The roots were coming from the bottom.
    And so I did just that unfortunately, it is not doing good.
    There’s some reason, the leaves are 🌱barely standing up in fact, to me it *looks worst now repotted
    I am not too happy about it and 😔 it’s sad
    And I don’t know what to do.

    *It isn’t near the size pictured.

    I’ll try a new one, it’s not my favorite.

    My Fiddle Leaf Fig arrived in a nice cardboard box. The container was wrapped in plastic and damp heavy paper was wrapped on top of the dirt and around the truck. When the plant arrived in Missouri, it was in excellent condition. It is now adjusting to its new home.

    This is the second plant I have ordered and had delivered from this company. I cannot say enough good things about their business practices and their care of the plants. I definitely would order other plants from this company.

    What size pot would be recommended for the extra large fig? Would a 12 inch in diameter pot be sufficient? Saw a 12inch pot was recommended below for the large fig.

  29. Marilyn A. (verified owner)

    My fiddle leaf fig arrived in perfect condition and is big, healthy and happy. And I will do my best to keep it that way.

  30. Alisa (verified owner)

    My Fiddle leaf (named her Felicity) arrived in beautiful condition and has acclimated nicely to her new home. 3 months since arrival and she still looks good. Would definitely order from here again.

Bring some life into the apartment

Gift for my daughters new home.

wanted to attempt to grow a tree

it's a beautiful plant!

I wanted something to bring life to my room and create my own personal oasis.

I recently purchased an XL Fiddle Leaf Fig bush from Plantvine and it is thriving. It arrived well packed and healthy. I've purchased from two other online retailers and have been disappointed (poor packaging/unhealthy trees with dead leaves). Plantvine exceeded my expectations. My sister visited this week and commented on how much she loved my tree - so I am sending her one! If you're browsing the internet trying to find a good source - use Plantvine...highly recommend.

Love this plant for a modern look in an apartment!
