Violin leaf figs are a relatively low maintenance facility that can add some natural, tropical vibes to your home. Although you do not need to do much pruning for this plant, you may want to cut away seriously damaged or unwanted leaves. You can also use pruning as a way to make your foliage denser in the long run.
[ Edit ] Step
[ Edit ] Monitor and remove leaves
- Examine the leaves to determine what the plant needs to grow . Look over the plant to see if you notice any brown, yellow or red spots on your leaves, as these are all signs that your violin leaf figure growth is not as healthy as it could be. Try to check your facility regularly or weekly so that you can take action efficiently. 
- Red markings on fiddle leaf fig leaves mean that the plant is drinking up too much water at a rapid rate. Thankfully, these marks disappear slowly as the plant continues to grow.
- If your leaves look yellow yellow it means your plant is overwatered. Try to reduce the amount of water you give your plant each week and see if you notice any difference.
- If you see some brown spots, it usually means your plant is getting too much direct sunlight. Adjust the position of the plant and see if you notice a positive difference!
- Cut away any damaged leaves with scissors. Cut off damaged leaves at the base of the connecting stem. Focus specifically on all leaves that look brown or black everywhere. 
- You can also remove leaves to change the overall shape of your fig tree. For example, you can cut some leaves at the bottom of the plant so that the foliage looks like a tree.
- Do not remove more than 10 leaves from your plant at a time. Limit yourself to pruning a small handful of leaves from your plant. If you remove too many at once, you may be shocked or potentially damaged by your long-term fig plant. Once the plant has developed more leafy leaves, you can remove some more leaves. 
- Wait until the fiddle leaf fig plant germinates more leaves on top before cutting more from the base of the plant.
[ Edit ] Encourage the plant to branch
- Wait until your fig growth is high. Starting from the bottom of the plant, use a tape measure to check the exact height of your fiddle leaf fern. If your plant is less than tall, wait for several weeks or months until the plant has grown more. 
- You do not want to crop the branches of the plant until the fig tree is well-established.
- Select an upper part of the tree to cut. Find a section along the top of your fig plant that is particularly leafy or causes the entire tree to lean to one side. Choose a small or large section, depending on how you want your tree to look in the long run. 
- For example, if you crop the top of your tree, you can cut from the top of the tree.
- You can cut off large branches for use for propagation purposes.
- Cut the branch with sharp, sanitized pruning shears. Place your scissors on the part of the branch you want to cut and then put a lot of pressure on the handle. Try to remove the branch at once so that your tree can look as smooth as possible. 
- Cut the tree at a 45-degree angle if you want to spread the branch to a new tree.
- In several weeks, you may notice that new shoots are starting to grow from the insert, which will eventually make your tree look fuller. 
- Leave your plant in a place with very indirect sunlight. Place your plant in a north or east facing window, giving the violin leaf figure an even amount of rays as you burn or dry it out. If you notice some pale wet leaves or see some brown spots on your plant, you may need to move your violin leaf figs to a new location. 
- South and west facing windows give your plant too much direct light.
- Nourish your fig with about water every week. Check the top layer of soil to make sure it is moist.  Preferably check that the top of the soil is dry, which makes the plant strong and healthy. 
- To check the soil, insert your fingers into the plant pot to see if dirt gets stuck to your skin. If the soil looks dark and tends to stick, you probably won't need to water your plant. 
- Leave some extra water in the drain tray for about 15-30 minutes, then drop it away.
