Fiddle Leaf Fig
The fiddle leaf fig is a very popular choice of indoor houseplant and can grow over 2m tall indoors, making it a real showstopper in any room. Their large, veinous, violin shaped leaves are their shining glory and they thrive in warm, humid environments.
About Fiddle Leaf Fig
Known for its huge leaves, the fiddle leaf fig is highly effective at purifying the air due to its high transpiration rate, helping to remove CO2 from the environment and control humidity levels, particularly in environments that may use air conditioning. Originating from the West African coast, the fiddle leaf has been known to flourish in low-land tropical climates. So, what does this mean for me? Be sure to keep your indoor plant well-watered and give it an occasional misting!
Coming in a range of different sizes, there are many different environments in which your fiddle leaf could be accustomed! Whether it’s one for your work desk, coffee table, or a larger showstopper piece, we stock the perfect sized fiddle leaf fig for you!
Caring for your Fiddle Leaf Fig:
- Remove yellow or dying leaves, and plant debris to keep your Fiddle Leaf Fig in its best condition. While pruning, always use clean scissors or shears to reduce the chance of bacterial and fungal diseases.
- When pruning, always cut as close to the stem as possible, as this will most likely stimulate new and exciting growth.
The fiddle leaf fig is classed as poisonous; if parts of the plants are eaten, vomiting, nausea and a loss of appetite could occur. Consumption of large quantities must be dealt with quickly; acquire medical assistance for further information. The sap can also cause dermatitis and skin allergy to sensitive individuals, so be sure to wear gloves when handling.
How To Care For Fiddle Leaf Fig
Allow the water to dry out by about a third ins spring and summer and allow to dry out even further during winter to avoid root rot. We advise adding luke wark water to Fiddle Lead Figs, as they can be quite sensitive to extreme temperature changes. Don’t allow the soil to thoroughly dry out completely, but just keep your eyes on it and you shouldn’t have too much trouble. If you don’t have anything to water with, why not try our BRAND NEW watering cans?
As with most houseplants a bright, indirect light is best for all-round growth, avoid too much direct sunlight and keep it leaves dust free.
A well draining indoor plant potting mix should be fine for a fiddle-leaf-fig. Add grit or perlite for added drainage.
Fiddle Leaf Figs don’t have any real problems but can be susceptible to spider mites, scale and bacterial or fungal diseases. Keep your eyes peeled for leaf damage as brown dark spots as well as any creepy crawlies. If this becomes a problem, simply treat it with some of our neem oil!
When small, repot your fiddle leaf every spring. But when more mature simply replace the top 2 inches of soil to refresh the nutrients. Have a look at our extensive range of stone plant pots and pick which one you find nicest!
