Fertilizer/ feed for the plant:Feed your Ficus Lyrata a good fertiliser monthly during summers to boost growth and get a dense foliage. During winter, the plant growth naturally slows down so there is no need to fertilise it in winters.
Repotting : The Ficus Lyrata likes to grow in a compact pot, so repot only when the plant becomes root bound. The best time to repot your Fiddle Leaf Fig is during spring. Choose a pot that is 2 to 3 inches larger in diameter than your current pot and avoid repotting in winters as the plant growth is naturally slower.
Propogation : You can propagate your Fiddle Leaf Fig by a leaf or a stem cutting. Choose a cutting that is at least 6-8 inches in size and includes at least one leaf node. Then cuttings can be rooted either in water or soil and the roots emerge from leaf node.
