Also found this with my great grandma at the same greenhouse. I've watched a fiddle leaf fig for a while! Any #advice for this babe please send them this way! #fiddle-leaf-fig #fig-advice #indoor #indoorgarden #indoorgardening #apartmentgarden #apartmentgardening
Definitely repot the fig ASAP. If you want a tree try a taller / deeper pot that’s not too big. Use well draining soil on a layer of rocks and add fresh top soil around the trunk. Pull off a couple of the lower leaves. Keep the soil moistened but not sopping and keep the fig close to a natural light source and away from vents, cold drafts and heaters. Lovely fiddle leaf fig you have there, take care!
You’ll want to remove other leaves so the new growth should be ok. Good rule of thumb is: don’t remove more than 1/3 of the foliage, the leaves. For fiddle leaf figs; if possible use gloves to remove some of the lower, dead and/or damaged leaves then dispose of leaves immediately (can be toxic to humans & pets).
