- My fiddle leaf fig loves light, so I placed it in my living room where most of the light enters the room daily.
- Consequently this area is also located right by a ceiling air vent, which from my previous research said not to place your plant next to vents because the FLF does not like drafts. I bunked against this rule because I wanted to test my plant and much to my surprise nothing bad happened! I try to keep it indirectly away from the vent so that my plant isn't getting direct air blowing on it.
- Direct sunlight hasn't hurt it, in fact it is doing A LOT better than it was when it was located in indirect light.
- Watering occurs about twice week with room temperature water; I believe I was over watering it before but have learned to look at the soil to make sure it is dry before watering.
- About twice a month I add a little sugar water to the watering cycle. I learned this tip from my aunt, while visiting her in South Carolina, she has a gorgeous FLF! She told me that she adds this mix to all of her plants, now I know her green thumb secret! Since adding this step, my FLF it has grown 6 new leaves since April (makes you remember grade school science with photosynthesis)! I don't add a lot to one cup of water, probably less than 1/4 teaspoon.
- Make sure the roots are getting covered each watering day.
- Dust leaves about every 2-3 months because the waxy leaves need to stay clean to absorb light.
