Named for its fiddle or lyre-shaped leaves, Fiddleleaf Fig is an impressive specimen houseplant, capable of growing up to 10 feet tall and several feet wide, given the right growing conditions. As it true of most tropicals, the Fiddleleaf Fig likes lots of indirect light, a higher than normal humidity, and deep but infrequent watering. It's best to keep this specimen away from heat/AC vents, as temperature fluctuations may cause it to drop its leaves. Cleaning its leaves with a damp cloth periodically will keep the plant healthy and looking its best. It's also a good way to keep an eye out for pests, as the Fiddleleaf Fig is susceptible to mealy bugs, scale, and spider mites.
If your fig tree is getting too tall, you may top the branch at a point just above a leaf node, which will encourage new growth from the base. You may also root the piece that you cut off by putting the stem in water until roots are one to two inches long, but it isn't a fast process.
