Give the Weeping Fig bright light, it can even take full sun, and keep it well watered. The Weeping Fig is a fast-growing houseplant that will require some slight pruning to help maintain height, but no more than a few small branches at most twice per year. Fertilize once per month to allow for dark green, lush, new growth.

The Fiddle Leaf Fig may be one of the most stylish and popular houseplants. You would be hard-pressed to flip through the pages of a great design magazine and not see at least one room with a Fiddle Leaf Fig tucked in the corner or acting as an anchor to a room’s look and feel. Fiddle Leaf Figs are the largest leaved variety of Ficus that will produce a handsome tree for your indoor garden. They can slowly grow up to 10 feet tall, prefer indirect or bright light and average house temperature. It is best to allow the soil to dry out between watering.
