2" Fiddle Leaf Fig (Ficus lyrata)

$6.99

The "Fiddle Leaf Fig" (Ficus lyrata) is a popular and striking houseplant known for its large, glossy leaves that resemble the shape of a fiddle or violin. Here are some care tips for a Fiddle Leaf Fig:

1. Light: Fiddle Leaf Figs prefer bright, indirect light. They can tolerate some direct sunlight, especially morning sun, but avoid harsh afternoon sun as it can scorch the leaves. Insufficient light can cause leggy growth and leaf drop.

2. Temperature: They thrive in temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). They are sensitive to cold drafts, so avoid placing them near drafty windows or doors during colder months.

3. Watering: Water your Fiddle Leaf Fig when the top inch or so of soil feels dry. They prefer moderately moist soil, but they are susceptible to root rot if overwatered. Ensure good drainage and avoid letting the plant sit in water.

4. Humidity: Fiddle Leaf Figs prefer moderate to high humidity. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves regularly, using a humidity tray, or placing a small humidifier nearby.

5. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix formulated for houseplants or a mix of peat, perlite, and pine bark. Good drainage is essential to prevent waterlogging.

6. Fertilizing: Feed your Fiddle Leaf Fig with a balanced liquid fertilizer once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in fall and winter when growth slows down.

7. Pruning: Prune your plant to maintain its shape and encourage bushier growth. You can also remove any damaged or yellowing leaves to keep the plant looking healthy.

8. Support: As the Fiddle Leaf Fig grows taller, you may need to provide a stake or support to help it remain upright. Secure the stem gently to avoid damaging the plant.

9. Pests: Keep an eye out for common pests like spider mites and mealybugs. Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

10. Repotting: Repot your Fiddle Leaf Fig every 1-2 years or when it becomes root-bound. Spring is the best time for repotting. Choose a pot that is slightly larger than the current one and refresh the soil.

By following these care tips, you can help your Fiddle Leaf Fig thrive and grow into a beautiful focal point in your indoor space.
