SUN
Fiddle Leaf Fig:  The Fiddle Leaf Fig requires bright, filtered light to grow and look its best. South and east-facing windows will offer many hours of bright and indirect sunlight. Sheer curtains will also offer ideal filtration.
Rubber Tree: The Rubber Tree thrives in medium to bright indirect light and can tolerate bright direct sunlight.
WATER
Fiddle Leaf Fig: Maintain a consistent watering schedule, repeating once the top 50%-75% of soil has dried. It is essential that water is delivered slowly and fully around the pot until all excess has flown out of the drainage hole. Use of non-tap water is recommended.
Rubber Tree: Water every 1-2 weeks, Allowing soil to dry out between waterings. When placed in bright light be sure to water more often.
AIR
Both: Mimic a tropical environment with temperatures between 65º-85º and a high moisture content. You can provide a regular boost of humidity by:
  • Adding a humidifier nearby
  • Creating a pebble tray that lives underneath the pot
  • Misting the leaves 2-4x per week with non-tap water
PET FRIENDLY
Keep out of reach from curious pets. These are toxic when ingested. 
AESTHETIC
Fiddle Leaf Fig: The Fiddle Leaf Fig is native to the tropical rainforests of West Africa and is known for its distinctive leaves, which are shaped like the namesake instrument. Leaves grow on a main trunk that can reach up to 10 feet tall indoors. Branches grow semi-sparsely, extending up to 3 feet from any side. The large leaves are strong with a shine over their emerald green color. A Fiddle’s unique silhouette and stand-out color make them a popular statement piece indoors.
Rubber Tree: Ficus elastica, the rubber fig, rubber bush, rubber tree, rubber plant, or Indian rubber bush, Indian rubber tree, is a species of plant in the fig genus, native to eastern parts of South Asia and Southeast Asia. It has become naturalized in Sri Lanka, the West Indies, and the US State of Florida.
HEALTH BENEFITS
Both: Active exposure to and care for plants has many proven wellbeing benefits, such as: 
  • Lower stress levels
  • Improved mood
  • Superior mental clarity and focus
The Fiddle Leaf is one of the greenest air purifiers, producing oxygen while absorbing the most common indoor toxins through its large leaves and soil. Dust the leaves regularly for optimal photosynthesis and shine.

OUR RECS
We recommend a sturdy clay or ceramic planter with a drainage hole to provide ideal moisture retention for the Fiddle. When repotting, use a planter of the same size or no more than 2 inches larger.  
Ideal soil is a well-draining mix with aerating and moisture-retaining amendments such as perlite, bark, and/or sand.
