Light:

Water:

Fiddle Leaf Figs enjoy weekly waterings, allowing its soil to completely dry out between waterings to prevent overwatering and root rot. Depending on the temperature of your space this will vary! During the winter months, your ZZ plant will be fine being watered once a month if the soil is still moist biweekly. Read more watering tips and tricks here

Fiddle leafs enjoy temperatures ranging from 64-75ºF. Avoid temperature changes and cold drafts.

 

Toxic:

Fiddle Leafs are toxic to both people and animals (not healthy to eat) - keep away from small children and pets.
