What Is Fiddle Leaf Fig Propagation?
Propagating a fiddle leaf fig plant means taking a stem or leaf cutting and allowing it to root in water or soil to create a new self-sustaining plant. You can propagate most houseplants, with varying degrees of difficulty. Fiddle leaf figs are actually relatively easy to propagate.
What Time of Year Should You Propagate Your Fiddle Leaf Fig?
The best time of the year to propagate is in the spring. This is when your plant is naturally prone to new growth and investing in its root system. The easiest way to be successful is by cutting from a branch that is already producing new growth, which is more likely during the spring. Propagation in the spring will also allow plenty of time for your new cutting to thrive before winter sets in.
How to Propagate a Fiddle Leaf Fig Plant
The first step to propagating a fiddle leaf fig plant is to take a leaf or stem cutting. Then you’ll “root” the cutting, which means you’ll place it in water or very moist soil to allow it to grow new roots. Here are the steps to propagating your plant.
Step 1: Prepare Your Propagation Container
You’ll want to have a container ready for your cutting with clean, chlorine-free water. Allow normal tap water to sit overnight to let the chlorine evaporate, or use distilled water. Make sure the container is a good size and shape to support your cutting and keep it upright.
Because it is more challenging for cuttings to to absorb water in soil, I used a clear plastic bag to cover the cuttings planted in soil. Propping the bag with some branches will prevent water from sitting on the leaves and causing fungal disease.
Keep the soil moist but not too soggy. Put the pot in bright light, some morning or evening sun is OK.
Because this is a tutorial, I carefully dug out a cutting planted in soil after 5 weeks to take a photo, although I was certain they have rooted!
