Fiddle Leaf Fig

With its broad, dark green leaves, the Fiddle Leaf Fig plant thrives in ambient light and adds impact to any room. It is paired with a handcrafted fractured pot that looks great perched on a desk or side table.

This plant prefers bright, indirect light, to dappled sun. Mist every few days to boost humidity, followed by weekly watering. If you're pot doesn't have drainage holes, remove any excess water from the bottom of your pot - this is key to preventing root rot.
