PLANT DIARIES: Fiddle Leaf Fig
Botanical Name: Ficus Lyrata
Common Name: Fiddle Leaf Fig
This gorgeous indoor skyrocketed in popularity, with the rise of social media platforms like Pinterest, Tumblr and Instagram which showcased an array of stylish interiors often with a large Fiddle Leaf Fig strategically posed as the focal. Ultimately the FLF became the 'it' plant of the 2010's, and still today holds the title.
Perhaps its the large scale, tree like form, unique shaped foliage, perfect lush green colour... or the combination of these characteristics that interior designers where initially drawn too.
Whatever it is, its got us all under a spell, and we're happy about it!
C A R E :
Approximately every 10 days. *please note, this is just a guide and is dependent on light, humidity, temperature etc.
During the growing seasons (Spring and Summer) its also good to fertiliser with a fluid fertiliser every 2weeks.
Avoid moving your FLF, once you find the perfect position, leave it there! Ficus do not like to be moved around
