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

I have water globes in mine. But some of my leaves have red spot on them too. What do you have yours potted in? @savannahssucculentgarden 🤔

@alysha Mine is still in a plastic nursery pot. I feel like I water evenly, so maybe I need to water more often?

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. 🍃

If he starts not doing well, maybe an emergency repot? Don't beat yourself up about it. You treat Phinneas like royalty on a regular basis, just like all of your plants 💚

@sarahkbartley Thank you, Sarah! I try to do right by them, but accidents happen. I think most of us have had several falls.

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. 💚
