Ficus Lyrata - Getting Started
I just bought my first fiddle leaf fig last weekend, and have a few questions that hopefully someone can help me with. I have read through as many instructional posts as I could find, so forgive me if I've missed this information. I know that for the first year, letting it grow without pruning is best so that the trunk will get stronger. My 'vision' is to have about a 3-4 and 5-6 foot set of trees. Should I leave them both in the same container? They were different heights when I bought it, but have already started growing so fast that they're even now. Also, by leaving it alone as far as pruning, does that include not repotting, or should I go ahead and get it into a gritty mix? If I can't find Turface, is there a good substitute that's readily available? I'm attaching a photo and several more (I guess you can only do one at a time!) so I'm sorry this post is so long and photo heavy. I would love any other suggestions to keep this thing healthy and growing! Thank you!
