Anybody know why the newest leaf is so wonky? Never had one come out like this.🤷♀️~~~~Anyway, Most Proud Of: I'm pretty proud of my fiddle, Phinneas. I know he's not perfect. The last 6 leaves have had pretty bad edema. I just can't seem to get the water right.😭 Still, I'm so proud of Phinneas for not dying and growing so quickly. I was a bit scared to get a fiddle. Everyone knows their reputation. But he has only dropped 2 leaves since I got him in November 2019. 🥳 #fiddle-leaf-fig #ficus-l
Idk I was looking back thru his pics and for u having him a year and all his leaves are still mighty small. What size pot was he in when u got him? My bambino flf came in like a 6 in pot with a white cache pot and he came from. Like Lowes or something where did u get yours?
Maybe if u can take a pic of him with something next to it for size reference. Like a clear straight on shot and I may be able to tell for sure. Flf leaves grow big pretty fast even the small plant u know.
I just measured it and it's 13 inches tall, not including the pot. It came in a 4 inch pot, and it's only in a 5 inch pot now. The biggest leaf is 5 inches long. I got it at a nursery in Charlotte, North Carolina. @heatherdirtyhands
Tbh that's about the same measurements on my little fiddle. 6 in pot about 15 inches tall without pot and biggest leaf is about the length of my hand. I have had it about idk a little less than a year. I'm thinking thats what u have
I think inconsistent watering (letting the soil get too dry, then too wet) can cause that. In small pots, flfs are a little high-maintenance. Once it gets into a deeper pot, where the soil at the bottom stays moist, the new leaves should stop crinkling like that.
Phinneas' newest new leaf has significantly less red spotting, which (I think) means my care is improving in regards to water. I'm so happy for him! #phinneas-the-ficus #ficuslyrata #fiddleleaffig #flf #newgrowth #newleaf #oedema #houseplant
Phinneas the Ficus has his first new leaf since I got him! I heard that the red spots are from incongruent or inconsistent watering. I didn't know I was being problematic, Phinneas! I'll do better! 😢 Love you, buddy. #flf #ficuslyrata #fiddleleaffig #newgrowth #newleaf #phinneas-the-ficus
Thought I'd give a quick update on my fall victim. It looks like he won't be dropping any leaves after his accident! So proud of my Phinneas. #ficuslyrata #fiddleleaffig #flf #ficusfriday #ficus #update #phinneas-the-ficus #houseplant
I set him on a folded towel..it was uneven ground...it's all my fault! Phinneas forgive me for I have sinned. 😢 Luckily he does not have any visible damage, but his roots were definitely shaken up. I hope he doesn't throw a fit and drop leaves later. 🍃
Definitely. When I had the stray puppy over, he knocked Melman (my bicolor/tricolor [unsure of color] Madagascar Dragon Tree) over and I had to emergency repot. Accidents happen. You have to take it in stride. What's done is done. 💚
Day 27: Trellis. Another thing I don't have! But here is a FLF I got today that I am SUPER excited about. #plantvember #plantvemberphotochallenge #flf #fiddle-leaf-fig #ficus-lyrata #houseplant #houseplants
