Fiddle leaf figs (ficus lyrata) add seriously cool flair to a room. The foliage is huge and gorgeous, and they can get up to 3 metres tall in the right conditions, making them a great statement plant. This one is over a metre tall. 

Light: Bright, indirect light is preferable, but they can tolerate some direct (but not harsh midday) morning or afternoon sun.

Water: Water when the soil is dry about an inch at the top. They are thirsty plants in spring and summer, but letting the soil dry a little at top helps make sure you're not overwatering. 

Humidity: No specific requirements really, but they wouldn't mind the odd misting.

Feed: Apply a weak dose of a fertiliser once or twice a month during the growing season. 

Care tips: If you're not watering enough, or are watering way too much you might see some brown spots and a leaf or two drop. Change your ways and your plant will quickly recover. 

Height and growth rate: Ultimate height is around 3 metres. 

Toxicity: Considered poisonous, therefore keep away from children and animals. The sap can be an irritant so wash your hands if any comes into contact with your skin.

Origin: Western Africa.
