Your Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree enjoys being watered on a weekly basis. The larger the plant, the more often they require extra water to adequately moisten their soil. By watering it once a week, you ensure that the soil does not dry up prematurely, keeping your plant growing big and strong. If you notice brown spots on your plant’s leaves, adjust the amount of water that you are giving it, as this can indicate either under- or overwatering.
To check the water levels of your plant’s soil, place a water meter into your soil, where it will give you an accurate indication. If you do not own a water meter, stick one finger knuckle-deep into the soil. At this depth, you will be able to accurately account for the soil’s level of moistness.
