The A-list houseplant your followers need to see
The fiddle leaf fig has dominated botanical social media streams for the past 5 years and shows no sign of slowing down.
An extremely versatile plant, the Ficus lyrata can be big and bushy, short and stumpy or even tall and spindly whilst still appearing effortlessly stylish.
This particular plant sits middle of the range at around 4 ft in height. A perfect size for a mid size room being large enough to make an instant impact but not quite big unruly enough that you need to purchase a machete along with it.
Try removing the top branch to promote healthier, bushy growth from below if your Fiddle leaf starts to look a bit tired and untidy.
NASA has also rated the rubber tree plant as one of the best plants for purifying the air.

Rubber tree plants are happiest in bright light but not so direct that they might be scorched by the sun. A little way back from a window in a bright room is ideal.
Originating from monsoon regions of Asia the rubber tree will benefit from a good drenching of water in the summer. Allow the water to run right through the soil and out of the drainage holes of the nursery pot, leaving the water 10 minutes or so to sink through before returning to the display pot. This can be done once a week in summer but should be reduced in winter.
The large leaves can get a little dusty which can affect growth so just wipe them down with a damp cloth occasionally; this will also help keep them nice and glossy!
