Recently Shipped Fiddle Leaf Fig, Ficus lyrata



When it comes to indoor trees, the fiddle leaf fig tree is very popular. The reason why it is so popular and loved by plant lovers is because of its incredible aesthetic features. Having a large fiddle leaf fig tree inside your home means you have a distinct and enormous tree indoors. With heavy veins, stocky stems, and violin-shaped leaves, the tree adds a very prominent aesthetic to your room.

It is advisable for homeowners to place the plant at a spot inside the house where it can grow at least six feet tall. The plant can be potted in any area of the house and at any time of the year. It is important to note that this plant is toxic to dogs and cats.

Caring for your Ficus Lyrata, Fiddle Leaf Fig

Since these plants grow in tropical regions, their optimum growing temperature and condition is warm and moist.

Providing them with optimum wet conditions can be difficult indoors but fortunately, like most ficus, the Fiddle Leaf Fig plant is very resilient and can survive slight temperature variations and low water conditions aw well.


Like most plants and trees native to tropical conditions, the fiddle leaf fig cannot tolerate sunlight at high intensities. Putting the plant under direct sunlight will burn the leaves, even for a short period.

It will grow best in bright, filtered light, but handles low light conditions well. The plant may lose leaves in low light conditions as it adapts.


The general rule of thumb when preparing and maintaining the soil for the fiddle leaf fig is to choose a plant potting mix that is best for indoor growth.

Another thing that you can do is make sure that the water drains out well. Having excessive moisture within the roots can be detrimental to the plant’s health.


Even though the fiddle leaf fig tree can withstand conditions that deviate from optimum standards, the soil must be moderately moist and allowed to dry in between waterings.

Keeping the water levels in the soil moderate is incredibly important. Over-watering can cause leaves to fall. On the other hand, underwatering will cause the leaves to wilt and lose their luscious green color.

Not to mention, this plant is very sensitive to high amounts of salt in the soil. Make sure to prevent soil buildup in the plant. One way to do that is by flushing water from the top of the soil until it begins to seep from the bottom of the pot.

Doing this once every month is a way you can replace the water in the soil and remove the buildup of soil.


Fertilizing the fiddle leaf fig tree involves adding nutrient-rich fertilizers during the growing season, which are spring and fall. Over the winters, these plants generally do not require nutrients.

Common Issues

An owner can tell plenty about the problems of a fiddle leaf by looking at the leaves. Any unnecessary spots on the leaf can be an indication that the plant is unhealthy.

The major causes will often range around the sensitivity towards the environment and watering schedule. This plant is vulnerable to fungal and bacterial threats, along with other pests and diseases.

The common indications that make the damage evident for fiddle leaf trees include bleached leaves or brown spots on the leaves. Ultimately, any time the leaves lose their green pigmentation, you can tell that the plant is in dire condition.

Pruning Your Fiddle Leaf

Since this tree can grow rapidly, you will benefit from having the leaves and branches cut every so often. Brown leaves should fall by themselves, be gentle if you pull them off before they fall. To get your plant to branch, prune just above a nodule during the growing season. Fertilizing at the same time will promote branching.


The best way to do this is by using stem-cuttings. This is because it is difficult to propagate fiddle leaf trees with seeds.

Potting / Repotting

Replace any loose soil with new indoor potting mix when repotting your plant. Depending on it’s conditions the growth rate can vary and will determine how often your Fiddle Leaf Fig should be repotted.

    My fiddle leaf fig arrived in perfect condition and is big, healthy and happy. And I will do my best to keep it that way.

  2. Alisa (verified owner)

    My Fiddle leaf (named her Felicity) arrived in beautiful condition and has acclimated nicely to her new home. 3 months since arrival and she still looks good. Would definitely order from here again.

  3. Ashley (verified owner)

    I was a little disappointed by the height of mine on arrival, as I ordered a medium bush. I now see the medium and large have the same photo representation, so maybe update them to show the correct sizing. However, it came in great condition and was well packaged.

    My fiddle fig is absolutely beautiful. She came in with no injuries to the leaves or trunk. She is kind of leaning but, I’m sure I can re-plant her and make her a little upright. Other than that she is bigger than I thought she would be . I am 5’1 and she is taller than I am. Beautiful tree !! Highly recommend♥️

    I was nervous ordering this plant given they are sensitive and the shipping took about a week, however, the plant arrived healthy and well packaged! The main stem was supported by a bamboo rod and there were damp paper towels and Syran wrap on the soil portion of the pot to keep in the moisture and keep the potting mixture from coming out. There were a few brown spots on a few leaves but nothing I would not expect given the plant was shipped. Will definitely order from here again!

  17. Monique Lascelles (verified owner)

    My baby arrived with not a scratch, tear, or leaf drop so far! He had what seemed like a rough trip (exterior box) but no signs of damage. This speaks to how well Plantvine packs our babies for shipping! I ordered several plants that fit secure and snug yet spaced to allow air to the plants. My FLF is a cute little tree (large) and I’m excited to watch it grow. I will definitely do more business with this Nursery I can tell care to put into propagating and growing their plants.

Bring some life into the apartment

Gift for my daughters new home.

wanted to attempt to grow a tree

it's a beautiful plant!

I wanted something to bring life to my room and create my own personal oasis.

I recently purchased an XL Fiddle Leaf Fig bush from Plantvine and it is thriving. It arrived well packed and healthy. I've purchased from two other online retailers and have been disappointed (poor packaging/unhealthy trees with dead leaves). Plantvine exceeded my expectations. My sister visited this week and commented on how much she loved my tree - so I am sending her one! If you're browsing the internet trying to find a good source - use Plantvine...highly recommend.

Love this plant for a modern look in an apartment!

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.

3 years 1 month ago

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:

How do you properly prune the tree to prevent it from hitting the ceiling?

2 months 13 days ago

Hi Brittany

Use a sharp, clean tool to prune your plant and be sure that the cutting motion is not crushing or damaging the stem. Make each cut about half an inch from any leaves or the trunk. This allows your plant to properly heal without risk of infection to the main trunk or any remaining leaves.
Be careful to think before you cut, as you cannot undo a severed branch.

I find it’s helpful to mark all the branches you’d like to remove with colored tape or a Post-it Note before you start, which helps make sure the leftover foliage looks balanced. Go slowly at first, and never remove more than 10% of your plant at once to reduce the risk of shock.
