Do fiddle leaf figs like acidic or alkaline soil?
Ficus trees like neutral pH soil conditions (slightly acidic or slightly alkaline). If the pH falls far out of this range, ficus trees may have difficulty absorbing nutrients from the soil. The perfect pH for a ficus is 6.5-7. Anything under 6 will be too acidic.
