How not to kill me!
This plant needs bright indirect light, close to a window. Another tip is to rotate you plant a quarter turn each week as these plants grow towards the light.
During the warmer months water weekly or just make sure the top 5cm of the soil is completely dry before watering again.
Wipe the leaves occasionally with a damp cloth to remove any build-up of dust as this can block important sunlight reaching the plant. This will ensure you have a super shiny, happy, healthy plant! The Fiddle Leaf Fig prefers not to be moved once in the right spot and it doesn't tolerate heaters or air con directly on it. Every six months or so top-up with a slow release fertiliser to keep this guy growing to optimal height.
