Fiddle Leaf Fig
With my beautiful, large violin-shaped leaves I will be a standout piece in your house.
We don’t believe in plants being fashionable – they’re all classics – but the fiddle-leaf fig is definitely having ‘a moment’. Its huge, fiddle-shaped leaves (hence the name) and the fact it can grow over six-feet tall means it has maximum impact in any room.
I like bright rooms but keep me out of the direct sunshine.
From Spring to Autumn water when the top soil has dried out, in winter water sparingly.
Feed me once a month in spring and summer.
I like misting every few weeks in the warmer months; I get chilly in the cold so try and keep the temperature above 18°C.
Wiping my leaves will help to keep my pores open; replace top soil annually.
