What Is The Best Fertilizer For A Fiddle Leaf Fig Plant?

Fiddle leaf figs are voracious eaters! With their large leaves, relatively fast growth, and towering size, they can deplete your soil in a matter of a few months. It is important to regularly fertilize your fiddle leaf fig to keep it healthy and happy.

But with an abundance of products available in stores, it can be confusing when choosing the right fertilizer for your plant. So let’s simplify the process by paying attention to the main details below.

1. Choose A Liquid Fertilizer

The best type of fiddle leaf fig is a liquid fertilizer. This can blend well with the plant’s soil and allow for easy absorption. It also will reduce the risk of burning your plant. Mix the fertilizer with water and feed your plant consistently to maximize its growth.

2. Look For The Perfect N-P-K Ratio

All fertilizers are labeled with an N-P-K ratio, which represents nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. These chemicals are responsible for foliage, root growth, and overall plant health.

The N-P-K ratio helps people compare and contrast the different types of fertilizers. You want to find one that is close to a 3-1-2 ratio for a fiddle leaf fig. This configuration will ensure healthy roots and plenty of nitrogen for growth.

Fiddle Leaf Fig Plant Food was created with the perfect N-P-K ratio and in an easy-to-use liquid format. It’s unique because you use it every time you water, instead of having to remember to feed your fiddle every few weeks or months. The steady supply of gentle nutrients can help your fiddle leaf fig look and feel its best!

These two criteria will make up the best fertilizer to feed your fiddle leaf fig. Although there are a myriad of choices, taking this direction specifically is best for your plant. You can avoid fertilizing during the winter, but at any other time, make sure your plant is fed consistently.
