‘Fiddle-leaf fig’ “Clumps” Ficus Lyrata | 8″ Pot
The Ficus Lyrata, commonly called the fiddle-leaf fig, is a designer’s favorite indoor plant. The plant features very large, heavily veined, and violin-shaped leaves that grow upright on a tall plant. This plant is native to the tropics, where they thrive in warm and humid conditions. This makes them somewhat more challenging for the home grower, who is likely to have trouble duplicating these steamy conditions. Still, they are fortunately relatively adaptive plants that can withstand less-than-perfect conditions for a reasonably long time. Lyrata are typically grown as larger hose plants. They are perfect if you can place them in a floor-standing container where the plant is allowed to grow to 6 feet or more. Outside the trees commonly reach heights of 40. This plant can take modest pruning to shape. Once cut however, they stop growing vertical and begin to branch out.
