A great ornamental indoor plant for a larger space, Ficus, also known as the ornamental fig tree) makes a superb focal point. With leaves shaped like a violin, or fiddle, the Ficus is unsurprisingly commonly known as the Fiddle Leaf Fig. It has very large, glossy, oval semi-lobed leaves with prominent veins. The thin stems are tall.
Growth habits vary; our illustrations show F. lyrata (syn. Ficus pandurata), which has a branching form.
As they come from western Africa, Ficus prefer lots of light and high humidity. As a houseplant, it may reach three metres at maturity, in 10–15 years, although the height can be restricted with topping.
Please note, pot illustrated is not included.
We regret, due to winter temperatures, this plant is only available for in-store purchase.
