• We already know that indoor plants are big news and that big leafed plants are even bigger news – i just thought i’d point out that word has it that the indoor plant du jour is the fiddle leaf fig. It’s a hardy tree that comes from West Africa and is known by it’s proper name Ficus Lyrata in gardening circles. It may be a fig tree, but this ornamental doesn’t bear fruit, sadly. Take a look at its beuteousness within the home environment – i know i want one for our home!

      Ah, Vicks I’ve had my fiddle leaf for about 3 years now (yes, I have managed to keep it alive that long – I am a known unintentional killer of plants) and I still admire it lovingly every time I walk past! They are the most gorgeous plants!

      I’m based in Durban and I can’t seem to find one of these. Any suggestions on where to look? How much do they cost range wise?

      Hi Baphiwe, there seems to be a major shortage at the moment, my advice is to ask your nursery to order one for you. My mom in law ordered one ofr you and it took three months to arrive- from a nursery in JHB.
