There always seems to be a lot of interest in and questions asked me about growing Fiddle Leaf Ficus as a houseplant. Along with questions, there is also a lot of confusion as to exactly what sort of houseplant the Fiddle Leaf actually is.

Thank you for this article Ken. How timely it is as I recently obtained a Fiddle Leaf Fig myself. I have a notoriously black thumb when it comes to houseplants. I was quite worried about it staying in the same pot for an extended length of time but your article has allayed my fears on that score. I was also concerned about how often I might be able to trim it and your article addressed that as well.
I feel much more confident about the future health of my fiddle leaf fig now. Smiling

The reason it's so hard to lose weight when you get up in age is because your body and your fat have become good friends.

Hi Ken, my fiddle leaf is finally growing a bit. Took me a while to figure where it was happiest. As far as water, what is your recomendation for when and fertilizing?

Thanks,
Kate
