- Remove your fern from its decorative pot, run water over its roots and then allow access water to drain out of the grower's pot before returning it to your decorative pot.
- Ferns enjoy a regular misting!
- Bring your fern off the floor or table by using a plant stand or a plant hanger, or by placing it on a tall surface, to encourage the sprawling, trailing foliage to flourish.

Fiddle Leaf Fig
- This indoor tree prefers bright indirect light to reach its full potential. Find a south-facing window or the brightest alternative.
- Avoid direct sun, as the leaves will burn.
- Rotate your FLF regularly to allow all angles of your plant to receive sunlight. This will result in balanced and sturdy growth. (Pro tip! For large plants, place the base on a lazy Susan for easy spinning).
- Give your FLF a good soaking once a week, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.
- For the best results, take it to a sink or shower, soak the entire plant and then allow all excess water to drain before returning to your decorative pot.
- A misting or gentle wipe down of the leaves will keep your fig extra happy.
- The fiddle leaf fig is native to Western Africa, where it grows in tropical rainforests.
