Finding the perfect balance is key when it comes to watering your Ficus lyrata compacta 'Little Fiddle.' Allow the top inch or so of the soil to dry out between waterings, ensuring that the roots don't sit in standing water. Keep a watchful eye and adjust the frequency based on the season and humidity levels; slightly more water in the growing seasons and less during winter when growth slows down. We recommend measuring the moisture of the soil with a moisture meter.
Give your 'Little Fiddle' a bright spot with indirect light, avoiding direct sunlight that can scorch its leaves. Place it near a north or east-facing window for filtered light that it thrives in. If the light is too low, its growth may slow down, and the striking leaves may not develop their full potential.
Feed your 'Little Fiddle' with a balanced liquid fertilizer during the active growing months of spring and summer. Dilute the fertilizer to half strength and apply every 4-6 weeks to provide the necessary nutrients. Avoid fertilizing during the dormant winter period when the plant's growth naturally slows down.
'Little Fiddle' enjoys a slightly snug fit in its pot. Consider repotting every 1-2 years, usually during the warmer months of spring or early summer. Upgrading to a pot only slightly larger than the current one will help prevent the plant from becoming overly stressed. Refresh the soil during repotting to ensure it continues to thrive.
