Fiddle Leaf Fig tree


 Fiddle Leaf Fig trees......

Or known by the botanical name Ficus lyrata. I am ordering one from my local nursery if I can, because my lounge room is devoid of plant life. I know I will probably kill it, but they just look so lovely. And they work with pretty much any decor style going. Love them!

 They look so lush and tropical against this white brick home.

 Chinoserie with the fiddle leaf..... I love that turquoise colour. And the mirror reflects it, so it looks even more lush and green.

More casual here, but it would be a boring space without it I think.


 Apparently they are great as an indoor plant. From what I have read, they are fairly tropical and don't like sudden changes in weather. They don't like cold, but will die in a heated room too. I will soon see if it does well with me.

 Good God I love this picture.

It must be the combination of the white sofa, the green tree and the orchid that does it for me. The Zebra hide is a post all in itself! I loooove zebra hides, even if some people find them confronting.

 They work equally as well in formal rooms as spaces with a relaxed coastal vibe.

Two is always better than one I say! Stunning.

This one branching out to the side is different, looks like a beautiful spot to sit and read.


So, are we in agreeance that this is the best most lovely looking indoor plant going at the moment? I think so.

  2. Hi, I haven't had indoor plants since my first started walking. I kind of got sick of sweeping up potting mix off the floor. And my poor lily had every flower and leaf picked off it - it didn't stand a chance. Maybe I should get a cactus! xx

    Love your images, and they have spurred me on to find one of these. I've been struggling trying to keep my palms alive as indoor plants, but they just don't agree with me. Hopefully I might have better luck with a fiddle leaf.
