Good morning, afternoon or evening! It’s been a few weeks since I’ve been able to post, so I wanted to make sure to slow down for a bit today and do a little digging into the Fiddle Leaf Ficus plants that we’ve had in stock recently!

First off, don’t worry if you’ve missed out on getting one! We have more coming in Tuesday, cause they absolutely FLEW off the shelves! Thanks everyone!!!

Ficus Lyrata

So, we more commonly know the Ficus Lyrata as the Fiddle Leaf Fig plant. These plants can grow up to 40-50 feet tall in their native habitats, which is the lowland rainforest areas of western Africa. Named for the shape of the leaves that look like a Lyre or Fiddle, these have been increasingly popular as houseplants worldwide over the last few years.

Growing Habits

The Fiddle Leaf Fig likes indirect natural light. Indirect means that it can thrive across the room from your window, or even in a relatively low light room. It doesn’t need to be right next to the window all day! Depending on the size of your plant, you’ll want to water approximately every 10-12 days, once the plant’s soil is dry when you stick your finder in the dirt to about 1” deep. If properly cared for, your Ficus Lyrata can grow to be 6 feet tall, or more!

If you’d like to get one, or be put on the waiting list to be notified for when they come back in stock, here’s it is!

Have a wonderful weekend!!!! Remember, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions!

Best,

Rob and Meg
