The fiddle-leaf fig is a popular indoor plant featuring very large, heavily veined, violin-shaped leaves that grow upright. These plants are native to tropical parts of Africa, where they thrive in very warm and wet conditions. This makes them somewhat challenging for the home grower, who is likely to have trouble duplicating these steamy conditions. However, they are relatively tough plants that can withstand a less-than-perfect environment for a fairly long time.
Light: Requires bright filtered sunlight - rotation to promote even growth. Direct sunlight will burn the leaves.
Water: Water in the growing season (spring to fall) when the top inch of soil feels dry. In the winter months water slightly less frequently.
