I’ve done a post on Fiddle Leaf Figs before but seeing as we’re getting a lot of inquiries for them recently, I thought I might do another.
This plant has soared in popularity in recent years, due to many interior designers incorporating them into both home and corporate spaces. Fiddle Leaf Figs are part of the ficus family–if you by chance trim or cut them they will bleed the same white, sticky sap that a Ficus Benjamina would bleed, as well as a Ficus Robusta, your common Rubber Plant. They’re all members of the same genus, or plant family.
Fiddle Leaf Figs like warm, sunny windows and hate cold drafts. If you notice brown spots start appearing on the leaves it is sometimes due to drafts. This plant will not do well unless it’s placed in a window; the direction that the window is facing isn’t as important as there being a window at all. You can’t put this fella in a dark room in your home or office and expect it to do well. It will slowly wither and die–dropping leaf after leaf until there’s not much left but a sad trunk and a few leaves.
When they are placed in the right spot, they’ll grow aggressively. You should prune them regularly or they’ll get super leggy.

I’ve posted about these tall planters before, but it’s worth mentioning again.
If you’re looking to fill a room with a higher ceiling, placing a taller plant in a taller planter is a great way to fill space. Plants are often priced by how large they are, (of course) and so by placing a smaller plant in a taller planter you can get more bang for your buck, when it comes to trying to fill a large space.
If you’re going this route it’s often wise to weight the bottom with something, because plants are naturally top heavy when they’re placed in planters like this. This keeps it from toppling over and making a huge mess should you accidently bump it.
The hard way involves making sure you’ve chosen the right species of plants for the lighting you have and remembering to water them in a timely matter among other things. Speaking of watering, about 6 months after you place all your office plants, the first time you look at the plants and they’re sad and dessicated you’ll ask your staff when the last time the plants were watered they’ll give you a deer-in-the -headlights look. Watering your own plants is easy, for the first few months. But someone will forget.
So why not do it the easy way? Let us design and maintain a beautiful interior plantscape for you, replace anything for free when it needs it, and keep them looking fantastic all the time!
