Helloooo new fave plant! With leaves as big as your head, this cousin of the fiddle leaf fig will wow you with its foliage while not breaking our heart by dying cos you looked at her funny.
Difficulty level – medium
Bright indirect light, but she can tolerate a few hours of direct sunlight each day (before 10am). Like a fiddle leaf fig, she doesn’t like to be moved once she’s found her happy place and can start to drop leaves if you move her around too much.
Allow the top of the soil to dry out 3 inches between waters. She likes one big drenching in the shower every couple of weeks rather than small cups of water more often. In the cooler months, you will find you only need to give her about 1 cup once a month and don’t worry about showers. Whatever you do, don’t leave water sitting in the drip tray for more than a day.
