Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree

I love fiddle leaf trees. I think it's my favorite interior plant (/ tree).

This one is faboulus and must be at least 20 years old.

Unfortunatelly, it is very hard to find some in Belgium. Even at specialists, you usually just find palm trees, monkey trees and ficus.

I found a bambino one at Ikea a few months ago but, even with lots of love, it is not higher than 40 cm yet.

But last week, Ikea was selling bigger ones. I didn't think twice and took one home right away.

Of course, it is an industrial grown one. Very vertical, like an industrial christmas tree.

So, to favorise ramification, I cut the edge and cautherized with warm water.

I can't wait to see new branches!
