- Can Be Grown Indoors Or Outside in Zones 10 - 12
- Large Dark Green Veined Leaves
- Tough Houseplant That Can Adapt To Many Locations
- Requires Bright Indirect Sunlight
Add drama and life to any room of your home with a Fiddle-Leaf Fig (Ficus lyrata). The upright plant has large veined leaves that add a tropical effect to your plant room or décor. It's native to the Western Africa tropics, but makes a striking indoor plant in any climate. The fig is a tough houseplant that can adapt to most conditions and serve as an indoor focal point or screen in your decor.
The name for Fiddle-Leaf Fig comes from the violin shape of its large dark green leaves. A fan of tropical conditions, the fig loves bright light and the comfortable warm, humid air of most homes. Its dark waxy leaves stand out against a light-colored wall. Fiddle-Leaf Fig grows quickly, up to a foot or two per year to a mature height of nearly 6 feet. It can survive outdoors in zones 10 through 12.
Fiddle-Leaf Fig Care
Plant Fiddle-Leaf Fig in a large container (nearly 12 inches diameter and 10 inches tall). Place your container at least 4 to 8 feet from a window, so the plant receives bright but indirect light. Rotate your container a quarter-turn or so each month to give all sides of the plant sun exposure and keep growth even. Allow the fig to dry a little between watering and give it lukewarm water when the container soil feels dry about an inch down. The fig only needs occasional pruning to remove damaged leaves.
Fiddle-Leaf Fig Location
Fiddle-Leaf Figs do best in windows that face South or East and in West-facing windows as long as they don't get too much direct sun. North-facing windows probably will not provide enough light.
