This fig tree is in a 5 gallon container and I don't want to plant it in the ground. I know I need to replant it though in a bigger container. How do I take care of this beautiful fig?

As for its care, figs love lots of light and regular water and fertilizer. If you live in an area where they cannot survive outdoors during the winter, you can either bring them in and treat them like a houseplant (though do not be concerned if you get yellow leaves over the winter) or you can put them in dormancy.
