fiddle leaf fig growth
I just bought a plant with two stalks in it. They are about two-three feet high. I separated them because I really am going for a tree-look (eventually!)...
If I want to grow the little houseplant into a tree, do I just pluck off the leaves on the bottom of it? How do I get branches veering off rather than leaves just coming off of the thin little trunk? Also, was it foolish for me to separate them? My friend mentioned I perhaps could have tied the two stalks together to get more of the branching out effect I'm going for in the long term. I have no idea how I'd do this.
