Fiddle fig tree

Zone 75206 | Clara.telford added on June 2, 2017 | Answered

I have had my fiddle fig tree for a about a month. At first it seemed to be doing well and sprouted 2 new leaves. I water when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Recently the leaves have been pointing upward and curling around the edges. Any idea what I can do to fix this?

Avoid moving your plant around; they are finicky and don't like change.

Aim for a nice bright location, an East facing window is ideal.

Misting during dry spells or winter can help.

Avoid drafts from air conditioners, they actually like warm temperatures.

To water properly, wait until the top inch of soil is dry. Then, thoroughly drench until water comes out the bottom of the pot, and leave it to slowly dry out again.
