Big leaves, big growth and little effort! The Fiddle-Leaf Fig is an evergreen tree with fiddle-shaped leaves that can grow up to 15 metres tall in the wild. However, don't worry about it taking over your home, as they don't grow as big inside.
This tree has roots in west Africa and is a fantastic air-purifyer for the home.
This plant is partial to humid conditions so will like frequent mistings on its leaves to keep them looking luscious and long. Don't worry if this plant drops a few leaves during winter or when settling into its new home - this is normal on both occasions.
