As someone who is not “good” at owning plants, I have had a lot of luck with my lovely FLF and have come to know her personality very well. While I know Greg has its own recommendations for watering,…

If you have a south-facing window and a place for fiddle leaf fig with direct access to sunlight... you’re in luck. Mine only thrives when it sees the sun ☀️. I’ve also had success fully soaking wh…

Does best in an east facing window. Can be awfully finicky. Does not like to move or be repotted often

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 Fiddle Leaf Fig after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
