The designer Fiddle Leaf Fig trees are highly sought after by everyone from shops, office and hotels to every indoor plant lover. They are the ‘it’ plant to have in your home. With their bare trunk and heavy green top, they make your urban jungle complete.Scientifically known as the ficus lyrata, the fiddle leaf fig tree is a flowering plant that originates from western Africa, most commonly found in Cameroon and Sierra Leone. It can be grown as an ornamental tree or as a houseplant variant.
The fiddle leaf fig is instantly recognisable thanks to the violin-shaped leaves that it takes its name from. The leaves themselves can grow up to 18” long and 12” wide, providing a distinct aesthetic that grabs the attention in stunning style. Even on the same plant, an individual leaf can grow at a different rate to others.
While the fiddle leaf fig is a houseplant seen in many countries across the globe, it is particularly suited to Australian households thanks to the climate. The captivatingly bold green plant can inject fresh energy into the dullest of rooms, which goes some way to explaining their popularity. The Fiddle leaf figs traditionally live for between 25 and 50 years depending on the level of care they are given and are characterised by several key aspects, with the most prominent being. The leaves, which are more prominent towards the top of the tree rather than the trunk, tend to boast a leathery touch and glossy look. Aside from their ‘violin’ shape, they are known to have very prominent veins that appear through the central region of the leaf and out towards the edges.
