🌤️ Fiddle Leaf Figs need lots of bright light. They can even withstand and thrive with direct sun. In tropical regions you can often see them being used as street trees, backyard trees, and even out in their natural environment.
🏠 With that being said, if you have a Fiddle indoors they will usually do best directly in front of a window or within 4 feet from a south or west facing window. If you have a north or east window you will want to keep it close to that window and be sure to keep the curtains/blinds open.
💦Fiddles like to slightly dry between waterings. If you let it get bone dry and leave it that way for too long you might start to see yellowing to crispy brown leaves. Water to evenly moisten the soil but not to leave it overly soggy - aim for your plant to need water once per week.
TIP #1 When watering always keep in mind the season and temperature of your home. You will need to adjust with regards to these environmental factors.
TIP #2 Use some sort of way to measure the amount of water you are giving your plant so that you know how much to increase or decrease next time if needed.
TIP #3 Water your plants in place with a saucer under them. This allows your plant a chance to soak up the water. After a couple hours if there is still water in the saucer you can dump this out and this will also tell you how much water you can cut back next time.
TIP #4 Try to water on a weekly basis, this will help to keep you consistent and to at least check on your plants once a week.
