Water

Water your Ficus when the top 50-75% of the soil becomes dry. Be sure to thoroughly water your Ficus until water drains from the bottom of the pot. If there is too much water in the saucer be sure to pour it out so the plant is not sitting in water.

   Common Problems Q&A

 Why are my yellowing and dropping?

Your Fiddle Leaf Fig is probably being over watered, make sure you are keeping a consistent watering schedule. If your plant is over watered for too long your plant may experience root rot.

Why do my leaves have brown spots?

This may be due to root rot. If you notice your roots are dark and mushy this is likely the case. You will need to remove the rotted roots and repot your plant. Be careful not to over water your plant! You may benefit from using a moisture meter. 

Why are my leaves drooping?

This is likely because your Fiddle Leaf Fig is not receiving enough water. Try to keep a consistent watering schedule. Water your plant when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry.
