- Light: This tree prefers full sun, but can tolerate some light shade.
- Water: This tree should be watered regularly, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Over-watering can lead to root rot, so be careful not to overwater.
- Soil: This tree prefers a well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter.
- Hardiness: This tree is hardy in USDA zones 7-10, where it can be grown outdoors in a sunny location. In cooler climates, it should be grown as a houseplant or in a greenhouse.
- Fertilizer: This tree should be fertilized twice a year, in the spring and fall, with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.

- Pests and Diseases: This tree is susceptible to pests such as scale insects and fig rust, as well as diseases such as fig mosaic virus and fig powdery mildew. Regularly inspect the tree for signs of pests or disease, and treat promptly if necessary.
- Placing: This tree is self-pollinating and does not need another fig tree to produce fruit. However, if you’re growing multiple fig trees, it’s a good idea to space them apart to prevent overcrowding and competition for resources.
