Variants

Ficus lyrata or ‘fiddle leaf fig’, is a slow growing plant that may take up to 10-15 years to reach full maturity, but after 3 or 4 years of growth it starts to become ornamental house plant. These plants grow best in bright filtered light, but can tolerate some full sun, especially if placed in an north-facing window. This plant naturally wants to become large, and therefore needs both spacial height and room for roots to grow in a large container.
  • Attractive semi-lobed oval shaped large shiny glossy leaves that grow up to 30cm long and 10cm or more wide.
  • Leaves have prominent veins through the centre to the edge of the leaves.
  • Filters the air for unwanted pollutants.
  • Fiddle Leaf Fig Trees are particularly sensitive to environmental changes.
Water plants regularly to keep the soil evenly moist to avoid a feast or famine approach. The frequency you need to water the plant will depend upon the room temperature. In summer it could be as often as once a week in summer and fortnightly in winter. Indoor Plants need light to create their energy and survive, so if a plant isn’t getting enough light it’ll exhibit some tell-tale signs; look out for pale growth and weak flowering. If your plant shows these signs move it to somewhere that has more light. Most indoor house plants originate from sub-tropical rainforests where humidity can be as high as 100 per cent. To provide similar conditions, spray the foliage of plants with warm water regularly. Fertilisers help to keep the plant healthy by ensuring it gets the nutrients it needs. Newly purchased or recently re-potted plants should not be fed with fertiliser until they are a couple of months old as it can burn the roots because they are not well established.
