My "Mother" fiddle leaf ficus produced so many new, long branches that I have now air-layered twice as many branches this summer as normal. I have a lot of really nice, approximately 3' plants, all with full-size, healthy leaves, and well-rooted in 2 gal. pots. These plants are very hard to find in most areas of America and when you do find them, they generally are pricey. There is an ATP subscriber who works for a nursery in Nebraska, and they have only two fiddle leaf plants. They are both about 5' tall and sell for $99 plus tax! My plants will be five footers in about eighteen months. I will make you a really great deal if you have interest in having one or more of these exceptional plants. T-Mail me for more information

For those who can't grow this Ficus in the ground like it's found sometimes here in Florida, Fiddle-leaf Fig (Ficus lyrata) makes a very pretty house plant and can be kept pruned to a desired size.

Yep. My mother "tree" is kept at or less than 7' tall and she is 25+ years old. Ficus lyrata is always featured in photographs on the pages of all the high-end, glossy magazines such as Architectural Digest, Prestigious Living, Town and Country, Home and Gardens, and Cocotraie Magazine. Pruning enables the fiddle leaf to branch more readily, thus creating a more dense plant.
