Q.Is My Pot Suitable For My Fig?

Zone rh12 1fa | Anonymous added on November 26, 2020 | Answered

i have 1-2 inch layer of stones at the bottom to let the water drain through the soil. But I’m starting to wonder if I should have some kind of removable tray at the bottom?

It’s been growing well, although now has started dropping a lot of leaves everyday. I have raised it off the floor as I have underfloor heating and thought that probably wasn’t helping.

I have attached a photo. If you have any advice I would love to hear from you. I am just going to continue to monitor it at the moment now its raised from the floor.
