Fiddle leaf figs are our favourite fecund friends. We’re in love with indoor plants here at HB and are rejoicing in the vigorous comeback they’re making in our interior decorating. But not all of us are able to see them flourish as they should in our home. If you've tried your best to rescue yours to no avail, what to do if your black thumb persists?
Gladly they're are lots of great quality faux plants in stores and online where you can literally take your pick of the bunch. Interiors stores everywhere are including faux versions of the fiddle leaf in their line up, in all shapes and sizes – and some of them look as good as the real thing!

Tip: spend a little time with your fiddle leaf to arrange the leaves - most have a central wired structure running along the leaves that you can form a 'scooped' shape with for a more natural appearance.
