Q.How to plant rooting fiddle leaf fig?

Zone Milan, Italy | Ayesha Zafar Sabri added on November 9, 2018 | Answered

My toddler broke a leaf off my fiddle leaf fig and it snapped in two parts. I put it in water and after a week or so roots started sprouting but from two points. When should I plant the fiddle leaf in a pot and how to do it?

The best way will be to fill a small pot, maybe a 4 to 6 inch container and fill it with a well draining potting mix that does not have a high fertilizer content. Get this slightly wet and make sure any extra water is allowed to leave the container freely. Dig a hole with your finger small large enough for the root ball to fit comfortably down about 3 or 4 inches and cover with soil. Give this a slight gentle watering to set the roots and treat it just like your larger plant!

This is ready to plant now, as it has a very nice set of roots. Just plant to where you can no longer see any roots above the soil.
