During the growing season (spring and summer) your plant will put a lot of resources towards growing new branches and leaves. To support a healthy plant, you will need to provide proper nutrition with fiddle leaf fig plant food. What does a healthy plant need? In order to efficiently perform photosynthesis, your plant needs to absorb light through its leaves and breathe in carbon dioxide. It also needs to have adequate nutrients to grow.
Use a diluted liquid fertilizer each time you water (every week) in the spring and summer and every other time you water in the fall. Do not fertilize in winter while your plant is dormant and not growing. Try a liquid house plant fertilizer or Fiddle Leaf Fig Plant Food for best results.
What is the Best Fertilizer for a Fiddle Leaf Fig Plant?
Plant fertilizers are distinguished by their N-P-K ratio, the percentage of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (chemical symbol K). A 10-10-10 fertilizer, for example, contains 10% nitrogen, 10% phosphorus, and 10% potassium.
The best NPK ratio for a fiddle leaf fig plant is 3-1-2. This formulation of plant food provides a fiddle leaf fig with nutrients to sustain its existing leaves and grow new ones. Because this formula is focused on growth, only feed during the growing season (not in winter) so that you do not over stimulate your plant when it’s dormant. During the winter, simply water normally and skip the fertilizer.
