Size:


SUN
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.
WATER
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.
AIR
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
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. 
HEALTH BENEFITS
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. 
SPIRITUAL INTERPRETATIONS
The Fiddle Leaf Fig symbolizes fertility, abundance, and good luck.  The care they require is a testament to our own skills and ability to nurture life + growth. Following Feng Shui practices, placement at a central-eastern window can attract abundant health in the home, and a south-eastern corner can attract prosperity.

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. 

Nature is unique - each plant may vary slightly from the plant pictured. Ceramic planters are not included.
