Ficus Lyrata Propagation in Atlanta, United States
Ficus Lyrata plants are very popular as houseplants and can be easily propagated. We have a number of posts on these and they are always so interesting to view the different growth rates amongst different environments and climates. This plant was cared for by @figandfur on instagram, and has also shared the process.
“I trimmed a leaf with about 2 inches of stem on June 11th from my big fig tree. I left it in water until the roots were about 2 inches long before transferring to soil in a cup. I always use clear cups because I am so curious and like to see the progress of root development. The plastic cup has holes drilled in the bottom for drainage. I water whenever the soil is light and appears dry.”
This particular cutting went from one leaf to four in just a few months. If you can get yourself a cutting of a Fiddle Leaf Fig you can start your own propagation, and to increase your chances of success you can use a rooting hormone. Alternatively you can get a fully grown tree on Amazon.
