Fiddle leaf figs prefer humid environments and are typically fine with the ‘climate’ inside a home. However , if artificial heating is used within the room during the winter months, one way to increase humidity levels is to mist the leaves with an atomiser on a daily basis.
When you see roots creeping out of the base of the pot, it’s time to give it a new home. Re-pot plants in early spring into a larger container. Alternatively, you can keep it in the same pot, just prune back the roots – no more than 20 per cent of the rootball – and return to the same pot.
Dust fig leaves regularly with a soft cloth. Dust can clog up the pores of the leaves and make it difficult for the leaves to function.
