Proper drainage is essential for the care of your Fiddle Leaf Fig plant. Choose a well-draining potting soil (or make your own), allow the soil of your plant to dry out between waterings to avoid root rot - one of the most common issues is overwatering. Your plant only needs watering at most once a week.
During the winter, your plant receives less sun, and as a result, it has less energy to complete its metabolic functions. As a result, it uses less water and nutrients. Water less and suspend fertilization during the winter to give your plant a chance to rest.
The ideal humidity for a fiddle leaf fig is between 30 and 65 percent. If you live in a very dry climate, you may need to supplement your plant with extra humidity by misting it or providing a humidifier. Be sure not to put your fiddle leaf fig near a heater vent, which will dry out your plant.
Accept the Loss of Older Leaves
Plants are always growing and shedding older leaves in favor of new growth. Fiddle leaf fig plants will drop their lower leaves as they grow taller. The bottom leaves are usually the oldest leaves because most new growth on fiddle leaf figs occurs at the top. It’s normal for bottom leaves to droop and eventually fall off because the tree just doesn’t need them anymore. If your tree drops a leaf or two from the bottom, don’t panic.
