HOW TO GROW A FIDDLE LEAF
Fig trees require a premium standard potting mix when planted indoors.
It is recommended to use a large, sturdy pot or container, as the plant can get quite large and heavy — then re-pot every two years to maintain health and vigour.
Apply a controlled-release fertiliser when potting up indoor plants like the fiddle leaf. A water-soluble liquid fertiliser should be applied every month during spring and summer.
