The Fiddle Leaf Fig
Ficus Lyrata, sometimes known as the fiddle-leaf fig, is a flowering plant in the Moraceae family of mulberries and figs. It is native to western Africa, growing in lowland tropical rainforests from Cameroon to Sierra Leone. It may reach a height of 12–15 metres.
The leaves have a leathery texture, pronounced veins, and a wavy border, like a lyre or violin. They may be up to 45 cm long and 30 cm wide, but they are generally smaller and have a large apex and narrow midsection, resembling a lyre or fiddle.
