Its thick, textured leaves are about half the size but are densely clustered and just as beautiful. This popular house plant is hard to find and is a must-have for small apartment dwellers who want a more compact Fiddle Leaf Fig.
As one of the more forgiving members of the Ficus Tree family, Little Fiddle is a low maintenance broadleaf evergreen tree that is easily grown in a soil-based potting mix. It prefers bright, indirect light or part shade with protection from afternoon sun. Water weekly during growing season and then reduce watering from fall to late winter. Despite its compact size, Little Leaved Fiddle Leaf Fig Trees can grow up to 10 feet tall if given proper care.
Ficus Little Fiddle is a relatively hardy indoor plant but because it originated in the tropical climate of Western Africa, it loves moisture. This can make it difficult to give Ficus the care it needs, but proper watering and bright indirect light will allow it to thrive. Don't forget to dust your Little Fiddle's foliage, as dirt and pollution can clog its pores.
