Plant Care Guide: Fiddle Leaf Fig

Fiddle Leaf Fig // Ficus Lyrata

This plant pal is the ultimate style queen. Dark, structural and unique, everybody wants to be her Frond. Keep her big, beautiful leaves shining bright by wiping down with a damp cloth or giving them a mist. Be careful not to overwater - she prefers to have the soil dry out a little before she re-hydrates.

Love notes

Keep your plant pal nourished and supported with a good quality plant food like We The Wild Grow Concentrate and We The Wild Support Pellets. These powerful plant essentials will keep your plants happy, strong and resilient, and will reward you with new growth a'plenty! 
These beauties thrive in humid conditions, so you can give them a mist every so often, and don't forget to wipe down those leaves when they're looking a little dusty. You can also spray with We The Wild Protect Spray every couple of weeks to keep leaves looking lush and healthy. 
Follow the recommended advise on watering above - if unsure, a Moisture Meter could be your secret weapon! This handy tool will show you exactly how dry your soil is to avoid any over or under watering fails. 
To ensure your new bestie gets enough drainage, we recommend keeping them in a nursery pot and displaying in a cover pot. If you do want to pot up your plant, make sure your decorative pot has a drainage hole and you've removed the plug. 
The secret to a happy and healthy FLF is plenty of bright, indirect sunlight. And Fiddle Leaf Figs typically don't like to be moved, so find a good spot for this precious pal to get comfortable in and try not to move them.
