Fiddle Leaf Fig trees are EVERYWHERE lately, and for good reason because they are absolutely stunning! I always think it is a good idea to have a little bit of greenery in your home because it really makes your rooms feel much more alive (no pun intended) and welcoming. Sometimes all it might take are some flowers on the kitchen table or a small fern on a shelf to bring a space to life, but if you are in the market for something larger that will make more of a statement, look no further than the Fiddle Leaf Fig.

They are tall, bright, and dramatic with nice large leaves. We used some in a big basket planter in a client's dining room recently and they look great!

I love how these trees can really fill up a space without being too overbearing.

One thing to be careful of if you are planning to get a Fiddle Leaf Fig tree of your own is to make sure that it is in a place where it will get plenty of sunlight throughout the day. These need a pretty good amount of direct and indirect sunlight.
