Soil to Use to Grow Fig Tree in a Pot

It is hard to say how big a pot you will need as it depends on how big the fig you have is. If it is a baby, say under 3 feet tall, you will only need a 12-18 inch container. If it is larger than this, you will want a container that is at least 2 inches larger than the rootball is wide.
Regular potting soil will be fine for figs in containers.
