Ficus Lyrata (Fiddle Leaf Fig) is a tropical plant native to Western Africa but can be found around the world. This plant arrives approximately 4' tall in a nursery pot and should be repotted within the first year. You'll want to transplant it into a 12" pot to give it some room to grow and stretch out. Be careful not to overwater the plant, and she'll thank you by pushing out beautiful little green fingers from the ends of each branch. Grown in Southern Florida, these plants will adjust to your climate over time and do best placed about 4-8' from a window with no drafts or direct sunlight. Clean the leaves every few weeks with a damp paper towel or some coconut oil, and keep curious pets from consuming any part of it. Check out our write up in New York Magazine for the full scoop!
