$59.99

Winter Shipping: please consider if this frost-tender plant is suitable to ship to your area before purchasing during winter and read our terms and conditions before ordering.

Growing a large Fiddle Leaf Fig is a wishlist plant for every plantkeeper but you don't need to be interested in plants to recognise these icons of interior decorating. There is often a large specimen inside many of the palatial homes we see on our screens and in glossy magazines.

Let them get large, this is a tree of course. Re-pot them up one pot size every year or two in late spring as they grow larger. Prune the growth tips to encourage branching from leaf axils below the cut. Give them bright indirect light and access to evenly moist, free-draining soil - like our custom bark-rich mix. You can let gentle direct light of the morning or evening to touch the leaves. Avoid watering in a wet/dry soil cycle, just a little water once or twice a week in summer then pull back as required to once or twice a month over winter when growth slows right down. 

Ideal for Intermediate plant keepers or beyond.

Light Requirements: Bright Indirect Light is essential, can handle part-day Sun

Moisture & Soil Requirements: Prefers evenly moist soil with good drainage in warm seasons - never soggy soil. Water when the first few centimetres of soil are dry.

Growth & Nutrients: Tree /shrub. Aggressive roots, will fill up nearly any container, keep away from water pipes outside. Prune once the plant is over 1m tall to encourage branching. Suits medium to large apartments or houses of any size. Feed with a general-purpose fertiliser for containers from the start of spring each year to autumn when growth slows down.

Temperature, Humidity & Ambient requirements: Prefers warm humid environments inside but can deal with most home environments. Grows well outdoors in frost-free northern NZ

Toxicity: Moderately toxic. Don't let anyone or anything eat it. The sap is a skin irritant so do not touch.

I bought this as a Mother’s Day present for my wife, as it is the only plant I knew she wanted, it completes her ‘Ficcus set’.
The plant came superbly packaged and in amazing health, big glossy bright leaves, and bigger than I expected. It is thriving in our house.
