I have 2 small FLS and they have grown so many leaves in a little over 2 months.
Below is a before and after photo. The smaller has 22 more leaves! and the bigger one is now growing 4 large leaves after I repotted it.
On the smaller one - some leaves are perfectly green and "big", about 6 to 9 inches in length but a lot of it has so many red spots and seems to have stopped growing. I see 2 that already have holes or were damaged as they were opening. What could have caused it? What can I do to make it keep growing without the red spots? I water the plant only when the top of the soil is dry. That would be 5-7 days in between. All of the new leaves feel firm just like the older ones. Once a month I add liquid fertilizer on the water I use to water it.
On the taller one - most of the leaves are over a foot and they're bright green. They look healthy but feel very soft unlike the other plant. Story behind this plant is when I bought it I thought it had root rot and I had to remove a lot of its leaves. I noticed that it's not growing and that some roots were coming out of the surface so I repotted. after 4 - 5 weeks, new leaves have grown. are there different types of fiddle leaf figs that's why they don't look the same? Or is this taller one just older so it performs differently? I water and fertilize it the same way I do for the smaller one. I also notice the leaves tend to fold to one direction like the one on the top left corner. Why is that?
I'd appreciate your insights on this! I'd like to learn more. :)
