Fiddle-leaf Fig Story
In the wild, Fiddle-leaf figs can grow as tall as 30m but about 2m tall indoors.
Fiddle Leaf Figs start life as epiphytes, as their seeds germinate on top of other trees, before their roots grow towards the ground over the other tree, eventually suffocating it.
Is Fiddle-leaf Fig The Right Plant For Me?
*However, a fiddle-leaf fig might not be the best houseplant choice if you have kids or pets who might try to sample your plant’s leaves. Fiddle-leaf fig leaves and stems contain a thick white sap high in calcium oxalate crystals, so if you do have kids/pets and a fiddle-leaf fig, it’s important to prevent your kids/pets from eating your plant or getting the sap on their skin or in their eyes.
