The fiddle-leaf fig (Ficus lyrata) is the “it” houseplant on social media. After five years, it is still dominating social media, and it is easy to see why!
Fiddle-leafs are perfect focal points for your room and your garden. You can set them in floor-standing pots. These plants can grow to at least 6 feet tall, with some specimens even reaching 10 feet. So ensure you have plenty of space for this lush new houseplant. They are fast growers and can be potted at any point in the year as they outgrow their current containers.
The fiddle leaf features large, heavily veined, violin-shaped leaves that grow upright. They are native to tropical parts of Africa. As a result, they thrive in warm, wet conditions. They can be challenging for novice plant owners, especially when it comes to duplicating the ideal, steamy conditions.
