I have had my fig for about 4 years. I didn’t realize naming was so important until I watched your video, so today she was named JoJo. I bought JoJo from an independent indoor plant specialist (not from a retailer). Jojo has remained in the plastic container that it came it and I just discovered that container does not have any drainage holes. I have never fertilized her (because I didn’t know I should until I watched your video today).
The plant has a water reservoir. When the indicator disappeared in the reservoir, I would add water to the reservoir. A few months ago I bought a moisture meter. I began using the moisture meter to determine whether to add water. For the last 8-10 weeks, the meter has indicated the moisture at 10+ so I haven’t added water. It seems strange to me that it’s been that long without water when I was previously watering it every 1-2 weeks. During this time frame 2-3 leaves turned completely yellow and dropped.
It doesn’t appear to have root rot but I learned today that it may need a bit more sun. So, today, I put JoJo outside to give her direct sun and a chance to dry up the soil. I have no idea what I should do…water? don’t water? re-pot?
Looking for any guidance that helps me be a good caretaker of JoJo!
