Caring for your Fig
Water your fig sparingly. Like most indoor plants, they love to be in a well lit position, but not exposed to direct sun. There is also a dwarf fig available too, called Bambino. Fertilize your fig once a month in Spring and Summer when your fig is growing. Keep your fig away from drafty places in your home.

Your fig likes to be watered ¼-1/2 cup of water each week. Like most indoor plants. Do not over water your fiddle Leaf Fig. They require more water over the warmer months.

Cleaning the Leaves
Because of their large glossy leaves your fig plant leaves tend to collect a lot of dust. Wipe the dust off each leaf with a soft cloth. Dust can block light absorption to your plant.
