Light:
Fiddle Leaf Figs thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. Prolonged exposure to bright direct sunlight may burn and scorch their leaves.
Water:
Fiddle Leaf Figs enjoy weekly waterings, allowing their soil to completely dry out between waterings. In winter, we recommend watering less frequently to prevent overwatering and root rot.

Your Fiddle Leaf enjoys temperatures ranging from 18-25ºC. Avoid abrupt temperature changes and cold drafts.
Fertiliser:
Feed with general houseplant fertiliser every 1-2 months during the growing season (spring to summer).

Fiddle Leaf Figs are toxic to both humans and animals, keep away from small children and pets.
Additional Care Information:
The large leaves of the Fiddle Leaf Fig easily accumulate dust over time. Wipe them clean regularly with a damp cloth.
