Spring is the optimum time to repot your Fiddle Leaf Fig. Choose a pot that is 2 to 3 inches bigger in diameter than your existing pot, and avoid repotting in the winter because plant development is slower. Propagation: You may propagate your Fiddle Leaf Fig by clipping a leaf or a stem. Select a cutting that is at least 6-8 inches long and has at least one leaf node.
