Product Description

Looking for a statement piece in your home? Meet the Fiddle Leaf Fig tree! It is quickly becoming one of the world’s most popular indoor houseplant.

Fiddle Leaf Figs are a wonderful choice for an indoor plant. It can also be grown outdoors in the correct zones. They add a touch of green color to any room in your house with little maintenance.

The Ficus lyrata tree has violin shaped leaves that are shiny and bright green in color. The best way to keep these plants thriving is by offering it similar growing conditions to its natural habitat of western and central Africa. That is warm and humid with not too much sunlight.

Fiddle Leaf Fig Care

Fiddle Leaf Figs like bright, indirect light from a south or east facing window. Direct sunlight may burn the leaves. If your tree starts moving towards the sunlight in an odd shape you can rotate the pot in the opposite direction to encourage even growing habits. Keep the Fiddle Leaf fig away from drafty areas such as A/C vents.

Pro tip: To keep your fiddle fig looking its best we recommend wiping the leaves with a damp cloth to get rid of dust particles that can block your plant from absorbing sunlight.

The ornamental houseplants prefer well draining soil and containers with drainage holes. We have our very own Fiddle Leaf Fig Soil that is specially formulated to aid in the healthy growth of your fiddles.

Water the fig tree whenever the soil feels dry to touch and be careful not to overwater. Apply a Fiddle Leaf Fig Fertilizer every 6 months to supply extra nutrients and keep your houseplants happy and in good shape.

Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish.

No shipping process is without a problem from time to time. On rare occasions some plants may experience some of the following during their transit: drooping, minor leaf-loss and/or minimal yellowing/discoloration, minor limb damage, etc. These instances are quite rare, but can happen when shipping plants in boxes.

Plants normally recover within a few weeks after planting. If a damaged box has injured your plant on the inside, please notify us within 5 days of receiving you package(s) by emailing us a photograph of the damage.

We always do our very best to ensure that your plants are packed and shipped in the safest, gentlest and most effective way possible.

Will my plants and trees look like the photographs?

Absolutely! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of actual plants and trees we’ve grown here, on our family operated nursery.

our story Lloyd nurseryGrowing our own plants and trees helps to ensure we ship you the best quality plants that are free of pests and diseases.

Your plants and trees may however not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree. Crape Myrtle trees, for example, only bloom during the summer months, so if you purchase one during the spring or fall, they would ship without flowers. Once planted, your plants will grow and thrive giving you flowers for many years to come!

Pot Sizes

Pot sizes (commonly referred to in gallons) are shipped in the same size nursery trade pots which may vary in actual volume. Some plants may have been at the approximate pot size listed, but require excess dirt to be removed so that you will not be paying any additional shipping costs. This doesn’t happen very often though.

Shipping Fees

Our shipping charges are based on the value of your order.  Please use the chart below to see what your shipping charge will be.

Choose a planting location that offers adequate sunlight and shade in a low traffic area. Allow proper clearance for the mature growth size. Well-drained soil is ideal. Water regularly for the first planted year to ensure adequate water is available for establishing a strong root system. Prune as necessary to remove any damaged or dead foliage and to promote a well-balanced structure.

Planting Instructions:

Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is equal with the ground level.

Loosen the root ball using a small garden spade or by hand. Breaking smaller outer roots can encourage growth into the new soil, but take care to not damage large primary roots.

Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated evenly upright.  Use the excavated soil to fill in around the root ball, using your foot to pack it in firmly. Thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball as this could kill the plant.

A 2-4 inch layer of mulch is strongly recommended to help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply mulch over the entire planting area but keep away from the stems or trunk by a few inches. Ensure that the plant and surrounding soil is completely soaked with water.

To ensure the proper nutrients are available for the life of your plant our proprietary Perfect Plants Special Blend Soil and a once yearly application of Nutricote Total 360 Fertilizer are great considerations for your new plants!
