Fiddle Leaf Fig

Ficus Lyrata, Banjo Fig

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.

Humidity

Your Fiddle Leaf Fig will also appreciate being placed in a humid environment, which you can create by misting it frequently, placing it close to other plants or on a pebble tray partly filled with water.

Temperature

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).

Toxicity

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.
