It has been a little over a month since I got my Fiddle Leaf Fig. I strategically placed it six feet away from my east-facing window (in reality that was the only spot I could put it in without Josh or I tripping over it). However, it loves it there! I've been watering it only when the soil feels dry to the touch. I've misted the leaves a couple of times and have carefully polished them with some "Miracle Grow Leaf Shine." I have two baby leaves peeking out of the top of one of the stalks and I could not be happier.
I was very hesitant fearing I will kill the tree, but I decided to add some fertilizer to the soil I bought the fertilizer at my local greenhouse and used only a teaspoon and a half for its 14" pot. I mixed it into the top 2 inches of soil and watered the plant with about half a gallon of water. Today the weather is sunny and 76 degrees, so the tree is out on the patio draining. Lets hope it lives!
