Brandi at Don't Disturb This Grove linked me up to a picture of her fiddle that she had shared on her Instagram - don't over water! Look for the signs! She said "For my fiddle-leaf fig friends: See the droopy leaf on the left, that's when I know it's time for water. I wait for that signal and it's worked for me so far!" See her fiddle below - see the bent leaf on the left?
Check out all her pics on Instagram and you will see, this guy has grown a ton!! It's so pretty!
I have followed her advice and my little fiddle has been doing quite well - at least staying alive! I need to transplant it to a larger pot. I also want to find a very thickly woven basket to nest it in. But for now, it's loving living right in front of the window in the dining room. I'll be back to update in another few months :)
By the way, Brandi has a great eye for design and decorating, is super helpful if you ever have any questions, and is one of the nicest bloggers (or just regular people) I have ever met! Thanks for all your help!! Be sure to visit Brandi's blog and check out her adorable house :)
Do any of you have a fiddle? How have you been caring for it? I just love them!
