Humidity You’ll see the healthiest growth if you give the leaves a regular mist. This plant absorbs a lot of moisture through his leaves.
Light watering It is much thirstier in summer than winter. Check once a week and water if the top two inches of his soil are dry.
Medium light Those big leaves like a lot of indirect rays, so place somewhere bright, e.g. away from the window in a sunny room.
Don’t worry if it drops a leaf or two after delivery while adjusting to the new home. It’s totally normal. It may also drop a couple in winter.
About Fiddle-leaf figs
Its huge, fiddle-shaped leaves (hence the name) and the fact it can grow over six-feet tall means it has maximum impact in any room. You probably won’t be surprised to hear that it's originally from the rainforests of West Africa.
As a houseplant, it likes a spot with a nice medium level of light, so not shady but not harsh direct sun. Those big leaves like humidity, so give it a good squirt with a mister every few days. It will also appreciate a feed with liquid fertiliser once per month in spring and summer. Our large fiddle leaf fig has three tall, mature stems in the same pot, as pictured.

In the wild, fiddle-leaf figs could grow as tall as 15 metres.
