Why We Love It

Our corner-of-a-room saviour, the tall, slim Fiddle Leaf Fig tree is an Instagram classic, perfect for any narrow space, while adding vertical drama.

Unfussy and laidback, the Fiddle Leaf Fig (or Ficus lyrata if you want to impress) is a top choice for high-impact, low-maintenance foliage.

Fiddle Leaf Figs are native to western Africa, from Cameroon to Sierra Leone, where they grow in lowland tropical rainforests.

Rich, green leaves are large, glossy and distinctively veined, while plants are known to purify the air of toxins.

Fiddle Leaf Fig Facts

It's like a violin...

The Fiddle Leaf Fig earned its name because of the shape of its leaves, which are shaped like a violin, or ‘fiddle’.

Don't mess with this fig...

In the wild, Fiddle Leaf Fig trees are epiphytes.

This means that they grow on top of other plants, where there is plenty of sunlight.

As they grow, they often strangle their host as they compete for resources.

Hardly polite.

  • As found in the Palm House
  • Current height: 140 cm, current spread: 90 cm
  • You wont need to 'plant' this houseplant. Leave the plant in its nursery pot, and put the whole thing into a decorative pot to create "the look"
  • Appreciates bright light and will do well in front of a large window, but be aware that harsh midday sun could scorch the leaves (ouch)
  • Water when the soil is feeling a little dry when you poke it with your finger.
  • Pets and kids? These plants are harmful if eaten, so take care
