I have a love 3' Fiddle Leaf Fig that I bought last year around September. I have no good excuse, other than that this summer was ridiculously crazy and I didn't realize that was the best time for repotting my FLF. I've noticed over the past month that I am having to water WAY more than usual, and after doing some research today, I believe the roots are too crowded. Actually, I believe it may be possible that I have two plants in one pot. I live in zone 7b 15 mi from 8a. She sits in a northeasterly sunroom with lots of morning light.
Should I repot now? And if so, should I go a head and separate the plants? (I eventually would like to do this as I prefer to have one taller plant that branches out. )
Should I wait until next spring? If so, is there anything I need to do to help it along through the winter?
While I am asking... Should I go ahead and prune? or wait?
I apologize for the neediness of this post... any relevant advice would be greatly appreciated. It's been difficult to find the answer and I am certainly "green" at caring for these plants.
