Fiddle Leaf Fig

marstarNovember 24, 2012

Hello,

I have been in search for the perfect fiddle leaf fig and found two very healthy looking ones at a great price for the size and I don't want to mess it up! First, my container doesn't have drainage so the nursery told me to put about 2 inches of perlite at the bottom and 1 inch of charcoal and then plant while another person said to just put rocks at the bottom. I have an outdoor/indoor ozmocote fertilizer or should I use MG fertilizer every 2 weeks? I would love to hear your recommendations!

Neither...

Do not put perlite or rocks. Best is to use container with drainage holes. If the container you are using is decorative, it would be best to use it as a cache pot; plant your fig tree in plastic pot that fits inside of your container.
