Fiddle Leaf Fig Ficus

Fiddle Leaf Fig Ficus
Light Icon


Bright indirect light year-round. Give your plant a quarter turn every week or so to expose all sides to light.

Water Icon


Keep soil evenly moist. Drooping yellow leaves are a sign of overwatering.

Temperature Icon


Average room temperatures 60-75°F/16-24°C.

Soil Icon


Any good potting mix.

Fertilizer Icon


Feed 3 times a year during the growing season (spring-summer-fall) with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half.

Propagation Icon


Stem tip cuttings and air layering. Propagating large-leaf fig trees is not easy for the amateur to do at home. These trees are slow to root from either method.
