Light levels: Fiddle-leaf figs require bright, filtered light to grow and look their best. They don't like hot direct sun, this will burn the leaves.
Watering: The Fiddle Leaf Fig likes its soil to be kept consistently evenly moist, with a brief drying out period between waterings. Too little water and the leaves will loose their deep green colour and wilt. Too much water and it can cause the leaves to drop. During the growing season (spring to autumn), water your fiddle-leaf fig when the top inch of soil feels dry. And over the winter months, water slightly less.
Temperature: Thrives in temperatures between 16-29 degrees and loves humidity.
Feeding: Use a high-nitrogen plant food throughout the spring and summer months.
Growing: In the right conditions, this Fiddle Leaf Fig is a reasonably fast growing plant which can reach up to 3 metres in height. Will grow towards the light, a good idea to rotate the plant.
Toxicity: These plants are considered toxic if ingested so it’s important to keep them away from children and pets.
Air purifying: With its lush green leaves, this plant is a great air purifier which helps to eliminate toxins from the home.
