Q. I have a fig tree clipping that I've nutured indoors for 2 years. It's now about 9 inches tall. Any suggestions as to what exposure works best? Can I keep bringing it in and out for years to come?
Most fig houseplants like bright but indirect light. A south or west facing room that gets plentiful sunlight is great but keep the plant in a position that allows the light to be filtered. Figs can be fussy about even minor changes of location once established, so you will probably have the best luck if you keep it indoors, always between 60 and 80 degrees. Keep it away from draughts, heat and air conditioning vents and cold windows.
