light and favorite place
the fiddle leaf fig likes light but no direct lunch time sunlight. in summer you can also let her stay on your balcony. she doesn't like drafts at all. temperatures should always stay above 18°C. the fiddle leaf fig also loves high humidity.
water and fertilizer
spring - summer: every 14 days, check if the upper part of the earth (approx. 1-2cm) is dry. if this is the case, you can water your plant (approx. 1/4 of the pot volume). rule of thumb: the fiddle leaf fig prefers earth that is dry rather than too wet.
autumn - winter: you can water your fiddle leaf fig even less.
fertilizer: around spring and summer (march until september) you should add some fertilizer to your water every two weeks. you can use liquid fertilizer or stick 1-2 fertilizer pellets into the ground. in winter the fiddle leaf fig does not need any fertilizer.
you can wipe the leaves of the fiddle leaf fig every week with a damp cloth. make sure the leaves have enough space to grow and that they do not touch the wall.
