Just a girl and her ficus, out for a drive....
I have been patiently waiting for this: The Fiddle Leaf Fig Ficus. So patiently that when I finally found it, I painstakingly buckled it into my front seat, fully reclined, to get it home. AND THEN I went back for another. I have named them Frank and Steve and I love them so. My first mission was to find them and bring them home (check), my second mission is to not kill them (so far so good)!
I purchased them from Campbell's Greenhouse in the Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte. These were his instructions:
1. Lots of bright light.
2. When the soil is dry to the touch (about once a week), water with up to two gallons of water!!
3. Make sure the pot drains well.
4. Don't repot in the fall.

I have been following these directions for about a month now and they both look happy and healthy!
