Hello
Bought cuttings mid summer and this one has grown into a little beauty. Problem is I cant figure out how to keep it happy. It seems to like the humidity bin with the cover on but what are the next steps? Appreciate your advice.

Your baby is not a baby anymore.  More like an adolescent.  Needs to explore the world.

Seriously, I think you need to up-pot.  Are you still keeping it inside in a humidity bin?  If so you'll need to gradually expose it to more air so your leaves won't drop.  That's a big plant to still have in a humidity bin.

If it's in a humidity bin, maybe up-potting and exposing to outside air might be too much too quick.

Not much, but that's all I've got.

Up pot and then gradually transition out of the bin by cracking your bin top for periods of time each day gradually increasing the time with the top cracked open until your plant adapts to the lower humidity. You will similarly have to transition to natural light for careful planned increasing exposure to sunlight.... Don't try and do both at the same time as that may prove too much stress.... manage one parameter / variable at a time until the plant is fully adapted to normal life on the outside...

Thank you for taking the time to respond.
I took my adolescent figs and potted up and then put into a vented bin.
Those that still are in the early stages were placed
into a humidity bin.
