About Fiddle Leaf Fig
The Fiddle Leaf Fig has surged in popularity in the last ten years driven by its prevalence on Pinterest and Instagram.
Fiddle Leaf Figs are native to tropical rainforests in Africa, particularly in Cameroon and Sierra Leone. They can reach up to 60 feet in height and bear small green fruit that, although not toxic, are bad tasting and not edible. Fiddle Leaf Figs belong to the Moraceae group, a family of plants that include the common fig and mulberry tree.
Fiddle Leaf Figs will be happiest in bright and humid conditions. In their native rainforest habitat, they enjoy average temperatures of 30 degrees and 3-6mm of rainfall per day. They will be happy in a range of light conditions from full to half sun.
Did you know?
Fiddle Leaf Figs start life as epiphytes, as their seeds germinate on top of other trees, before their roots grow towards the ground over the other tree, eventually suffocating it.
If ingested this plant can be toxic or poisonous so keep away from dogs, cats or other pets and small children.
