This is the ‘it’ indoor plant of the moment (who would have thought a plant would hit the most covetable lists of home decor enthusiasts!).
The Fiddle Leaf Fig’s luscious foliage, impressive size and deep green hue has made it a regular feature in stylish homes the world over. These homes that grace the internet have been inspiring many more to get on the Fiddle Leaf Fig tree bandwagon, however here in NZ (especially the South Island) they are not readily available.
Ficus lyrata, the fiddle-leaf fig, prefers bright but not direct light, with good drainage. Probably not the easiest of indoor plants to look after so maybe I’ll stick to my terrarium for the mean time…
