Light

• Bright indirect light, with some direct sunlight

• Turn your plant every couple of weeks so that the plant gets light from all sides and does not become lop-sided

 

Water

• Allow soil to become dry to the touch

• Water thoroughly when dry-allow for water to seep out of your drainage holes

• If your plant does not get enough water, new leaves will turn brown and drop. If your plant is over-watered, the oldest leaves will turn brown and drop

 

Fertilizer

• Use Schultz Liquid Plant Food 10-15-10 every time you water from April-September

 

Growing Tips

• Cold drafts from windows, doors and air-conditioning units may cause its leaves to dry out and drop

• Find a home for your plant and do not move it! Figs get stressed out when they get moved around too much

• Consider placing on a pebble tray or near a humidifier

• Wipe down leaves regularly to remove dust and check for pests
