Ficus lyrata - fiddle leaf fig

APPEARANCE: Compact houseplant grown indoors; impressive tree when allowed to grow full-size. Large firm broad leaves with a curvy edge, reminiscent in shape of a violin, hence the common name. Young leaves will need time to develop their wiggles.
USE IN:  Easycare indoor, container or tropical garden plant. Needs a sheltered frost-free spot over 10C.
CARE: Mulch and water with a seaweed based fertiliser on planting to reduce transplant shock, follow with regular watering until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Apply a slow release fertiliser twice yearly and protect from frost. container plants may need extra feed and a repot into fresh soil once a year. Wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to keep them healthy and looking good.
HEIGHT & WIDTH:  1-2m H x 1m W potted; to 5m in the garden. When it reaches the height you want, cut the 'leader' or main shoot.
YOUR PLANTS: These plants are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide
