|I recently discovered a Fiddle Leaf Fig, and I love the plant. I would love to put one in my room, but I do not know its water and light requirements. I have a window that gets light from when the sun rises to about noon/1:00. If I got a Fiddle Leaf Fig, it would not get a lot of light. Can the Fig tolerate low light? Also, how often should I water the Fig if I bought one?|

|Fiddle-leafed Figs are not low light plants. You might have enough light from an east facing window, but only if the FLF was placed right in the center of and very close to the window and the window was completely uncovered through the daylight hours.
If it gets enough light, then it will need a thorough watering every week without fail. Keep it in its plastic nursery pot.
Inadequate light and water are where most folks go wrong with this plant. Otherwise, it is very hardy and rewarding.
