Just a little update on one of my houseplants, one of a few fiddleleaf figs (Ficus lyrata) I have.
Here's the way it looks right now. Want to hear more about this and why it's somewhat amazing?
About a year ago I pruned this plant back to bare sticks, a scary thing that I do every few years. Here's what it looked like after a few weeks:
That was a big relief, seeing that growth.
Here it is again now after spending the summer under the skylights in my deck:
So nice, and it looks fantastic again inside the house, not the lanky, awkward thing it was before the pruning.
This fall I pruned another one, and it's just starting to refoliate:
It will live outdoors this summer too, so it should be nice and leafy when I next show it to you.
Houseplants are difficult unless you have lots of light, so I'm glad that I can revive at least some of them every year or two!
