A beautiful, temperamental plant, Fiddle Leaf Fig wants heat and sun. It will let you know if conditions are not exactly right by dropping leaves and looking dead. Most fiddle leaf fig owners/staff resort to supplemental light to keep their plant happy.
Fiddle leaf figs like to dry slightly between watering. Never overwater a fig, don’t let the soil get soggy, or the roots will rot and the plant will die in very dramatic fashion.
