Get to Know Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree!

Highlights

The Fiddle Leaf Fig (Ficus lyrata) is easily recognizable and loved for its distinctive foliage. This tall, dramatic plant has very large, heavily veined, violin-shaped leaves that grow upright.

Watering

Water young fig trees regularly to help them become established. In areas with dry climates, water fig trees deeply at least once a week.

Sunlight

Find a spot that receives lots of bright indirect light for your fig tree. All plants need light, but fig trees need lots of it. They require indirect sunlight for at least 6 hours daily! Make sure to routinely rotate this plant so each side receives consistent sunlight. This will keep the fig tree growing upright and prevent it from leaning or developing new growth just on one side.

Pet-Friendly?

No, this fig tree is not pet friendly.

Sad Plant (is your plant dying?)

Preventing a sad plant:
- Unless grown in containers, most fig trees do not require regular fertilization. However, if your fig tree is not growing much (less than 12 inches in one growing season), you can add ½ to 1 pound of nitrogen supplement. Divide up the nitrogen into 3 to 4 feedings. Start applying the nitrogen in late winter and end in midsummer.
- You can also apply a layer of mulch around the tree to help prevent weeds and keep in moisture for the roots.
- Fig trees require little pruning. During the dormant season, be sure to remove all dead, diseased, or weak branches to encourage growth.
