Janna Schilling greeneryunlimited.co. explains that the Fiddle Leaf Fig enjoys a humid, warm environment with plenty of sunlight and water. It is best to choose an area away from drafts or air vents, where there will be plenty of light. The ideal location is close to, or directly in front of, a western or southern facing window. East exposure works well as long as it is not too bright. The plant will also benefit from a few hours in direct sunlight. Your Fiddle Leaf will look its best if it is placed in full sun (where it will get over 6 hours of sunlight daily), and a humid area. This plant is not recommended for northern windows. They won’t thrive in places with very low lighting. We are grateful to Ketra Swartz who shared this information with us.
