Description

THE #1 HOUSEPLANT THAT’S ALSO GREAT IN YOUR OUTDOOR GARDEN

The Fiddle Leaf Fig or Ficus Lyrata is a popular addition to subtropical and tropical gardens as an ornamental bush or tree. Its leathery leaves are thick and shiny. As the Fiddle Leaf grows, its lower leaves fall off, revealing a rough brown cracked-looking trunk. In its native western Africa, it uses other trees as a host before it starts rooting itself into the ground. In tropical rainforests, the Fiddle Leaf can grow to nearly 50 ft. But, fear not, with proper maintenance, you’ll find this a delightful addition – indoors or out.

When planting outdoors, make sure to place it in a spacious area with bright light, though not direct sunlight (which may burn its leaves). It prefers soil that can be kept evenly moist, but not soggy.  If the weather is humid, it does not require much watering.

    Impressive tree! Excellent shape and color. I love it! I am very worried that there are numerous dark brown spots on the leaves. One of the leaves is shriveled even though it has excellent color. I am ok with the spots/scars if it is not a disease nor an insect. Please let me know. I love the tree and I don’t want to lose it. Please let me know. Thx

Tengo dos hermosas plantas de esta familia en el interior de mi casa. Me preocupa ver que en algunas hojas aparecen grandes manchas negras. Como puedo remediarlas?.. Gracias de antemano por vuestros consejos.

Usualmente las manchas negras son consecuencia de, o mucho sol, o mucha agua. Asegúrese de que su planta esté en un área brillante y que no reciba sol directa. Solo deberias poner aqua después de que el suelo haya tenido tiempo de secarse. Mi Lyrata solo necesita ser regada solo una vez por semana por ejemplo.

Are they poisonous for children or pets?

Hi Debra, Ficus Lyrata’s can be dangerous to pets and humans if ingested. If you are looking for something that is tall and safe not poisonous to pets or children, Cat palms make a great choice. Here is a link for you to review this item: https://www.plantvine.com/product/chamaedorea-cataractarum-cat-palm/?v=7516fd43adaa

Please feel free to contact our customer service if you are looking for a different type of look for your home!

Hi Janet,
Yes, you can eventually train the smaller Fiddle leaf fig bush into tree form. It will take some time but it is possible!

Does this plant come in a pot that has a plate for drainage? If not, can I order a pot and have it delivered in it?

Hi! Our plants do not come with a plat for drainage. You may order a pot with it but it will come packaged separately.
