Our 5 ft. fiddle leaf fig (Ficus lyrata) is a species of fig tree native to the lowland tropics of western Africa. In its native habitat, it can grow over forty feet tall, however indoor fiddle leaf figs are significantly smaller.
Their leaves vary in shape but are often broad, leathery in texture, and a vibrant green hue with prominent veining. Some say they resemble a fiddle – hence their name. The fiddle leaf fig is most happy in a stable environment temperature-wise where it receives at least a few hours of bright direct light a day. They can be fickle with temperature and light changes, so consistency is key.
