Huge Fiddle Leaf Fig
This Fiddle Leaf Fig (huge) continues to impress our NYC and NJ customers. Also known as the Ficus lyrata, this lush beauty is native to Western Africa and is a bit delicate with what conditions it can tolerate. The soil can’t be too wet, or too dry, and it doesn’t like dry air either. Additionally, this beauty needs just the right amount of sunlight to thrive. In its full-size, this ficus can approach sizes of 6 and 7 feet tall, expanding as large as 3 feet wide if taken care of properly. Be careful with this baby, it may end up outgrowing your house if you let it!
Let There Be High Light... and Also Dampness
The fig must be kept in a bright room, as it thrives with direct sunlight. You might also want to pick up a new humidifier for your fiddle if you live in dry climates. The soil must also be kept just right, as too much dryness or moisture can have negative effects.

Thick, Boisterous Leaves
Huge leaves sprout all over the fig’s tree-like trunk that looks like fans. When taken care of properly, the glossy foliage expands and reaches high like outstretched arms. These gigantic leaves can approach 8 inches or more!
