Ficus lyrata has large olive green or silver leaves that look like they came from a violin - hence its common names fiddle-leaf fig and banjo fig!
Product Name: Ficus Lyrata (P31c)
Ficus lyrata, also known as the fiddle-leaf fig or banjo fig, is a species of evergreen tropical tree native to Africa. This evergreen tree grows up to 10 meters tall but usually stays around 3–5 meters when kept indoors. It belongs to the same family as banyan trees and rubber vines and is part of the Moraceae genus. Its striking feature is its large olive green or silver leaves that look like they came from a violin - hence its common name fiddle-leaf fig!
Uniquely amongst members of the genus Ficus they have milky sap inside them which oozes from any cuts made in its bark or stems. This plant has gained much popularity recently due to its compact size, striking foliage, attractive shape & ease for home growers making it an excellent choice for most indoor settings.
