  • Humidity – You’ll see the healthiest growth if you give the leaves a regular mist. It absorbs a lot of moisture through its leaves.
  • Light watering It’s much thirstier in summer than winter. Check once a week and water if the top two inches of soil are dry.
  • Medium light Those big leaves like a lot of indirect rays, so place somewhere bright, e.g. away from the window in a sunny room.
  • Don’t worry if it drops a leaf or two after delivery while adjusting to its new home. It’s totally normal. This plant may also drop a couple in winter.
  • height 100cm pot 21cm

This fiddle leaf fig tree is a mature version of our Fidel. You may not be surprised to hear this plant is from the rainforests of West Africa. You might be surprised to know that it frequently grows as an epiphyte. This means it starts its life not on the ground, but high up in the crevices of larger trees. As it grows, it sends roots down to the ground, which wraps around its host and eventually strangles it. Quite fittingly dramatic for such a star plant. Like the smaller fiddle leaf figs, it likes moist air and quite bright light. However, because this is such a mature plant, it can deal with less than perfect conditions. It’s a bit tougher than its younger siblings. It will appreciate a feed with liquid fertiliser once per month in spring and summer, to help it grow big and strong.

Please be aware that every tree is unique, so yours may look different from the one in the pictures. That’s the joy of this tree, each has had time to acquire its own special character.
