Fiddle Dee Dee


After seeing Grant K. Gibson's beautiful Fiddle Leaf Fig tree, I have always wanted one.  Somewhere along the way, I heard that they don't do well in New York.  While shopping for a tree in the Flower District, I learned that this information was just a myth.  You can own a Fiddle Leaf Fig tree in the city if you take care of it. According to the owner of Noble Planta, you should let the top soil dry out before watering.  Then water slowly around the stem first and then around the outside.  When you see water in the tray, that is your cue to stop.  If there is no tray or saucer, he recommended about 3-4 cups of water. Watering the same day every week is not best because it might need more water one week and less the next.  You have to check.  He also suggested opening the windows early in the morning so it receives fresh air in the summer.  You should also try to give it fresh air in the winter but away from a cold draft.  I am excited to own one but I need to buy a planter before it's ready for its close up.  For now, you can see by these photos that they are not only very popular but look great in a variety of different interiors.
