You probably won’t be surprised to hear that it’s originally from the rainforests of West Africa.
Its huge, fiddle-shaped leaves (hence the name) and the fact it can grow over six-feet tall means it has maximum impact in any room.
As a houseplant, it likes a spot with a nice medium level of light, so not shady but not harsh direct sun. Those big leaves like humidity, so give it a good squirt with a mister every few days. It will also appreciate a feed with liquid fertiliser once per month in spring and summer.
Our large fiddle leaf fig has three tall, mature stems in the same pot, as pictured. We also have a tree version, the ultimate fiddle leaf fig.
