One of the most sculptural plants with its large and elegant leaves. Available in a variety of shapes and sizes. Turn a Fiddle Leaf frequently to keep it growing straight. We have a variety of different Ficus Lyratas from "little fiddles" with tinier leaves to wide broad leaf bush shaped specimens. If you have a requested shape, please make a note on your order and we will do our best to accommodate.
LIGHT: Bright indirect light. Insufficient light causes small leaves and leaf drop. Too much sun causes the leaves of a Fiddle Leaf Fig to fade and lose their dark green color.
WATER: Allow the top 50% of topsoil to dry out and the leaves to become soft and flexible before watering.
POTTING: All-purpose organic potting soil and a well draining pot situation is ideal. Like all Ficus Trees, this variety likes being root-bound in small pots.
TEMPERATURE:60-80° Keep away from air conditioners, drafts, and heating vents. Intense cold or heat causes leaf drop.
TOXICITY: Plant is toxic and should be kept away from pets and children.
NOTES: Spray leaves every other week with warm soapy water or a mixture of neem oil to ward off plant pests. Spraying the leaves also keeps them dust free and clean so they can absorb more light.
