Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Dwarf Fiddle Leaf Fig after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I find the dwarf fiddle leaf much easier to care for than the regular fiddle leaf! Mine is in a western facing window and I water it maybe once every 2 weeks and have gotten plenty of new leaves. You can tell these apart from regular FLFs because it has multiple skinny trunks instead of just one thicker trunk. Great entry plant for getting started on fiddle leafs!
