How to take care of Cheese plant

Place your Cheese plant (Fig) in a bright spot but avoid direct sunlight, do not place near radiators and avoid drafts.


Allow the soil to dry out slightly between each watering, mist plants regularly.

Provide humidity by placing Cheese plantplants on a tray of gravel or stones; fill the tray with water so that the bottom pebbles rest in the water and the top ones are dry. By keeping the tray constantly half-filled with water, a nicely humid environment will be created.

Fertilise your Cheese plant monthly throughout the growing season with fertilizer diluted to half strength.
