One of my personal favs the Ficus Lyrata (Fiddle Leaf Fig) I love them so much as you get big leafy bang for your buck!
This indoor tree type plant can grow to over 15 meters tall in it's natural habitat and up to 3 meters indoors, although they can be topped to prevent them growing taller. When these plants mature in age and size they make a great focal point within living rooms, hallways, offices or hotels.
The fiddle leaf fig from the ficus genus of trees is an exciting species to grow with larger leaves than the others from the genus.
Care level: I would say this ficus seems to be a little harder to care for than the elastica (rubber plant) which is mainly due to it's need for light and it' sensitivity to losing leaves. The worst thing to do is over water. Also, allowing the soil to dry too much with low humidity levels will cause leaves to turn brown and unattractive. It's not quite a beginner plant and in no need of an expert - so most growers will be fine.
If you have heating units or air-conditioners, it is best to avoid placing plants underneath or next to them. This is because of the air blowing out from these units can be extremely hot or cold which can leave a healthy plant burnt, damaged and stressed. We recommend the Australian made Munash Organics soil food & foliage spray or The Plant Runner Plant Food or neem oil to keep you plants happy and healthy!

*Disclaimer: We pack our gorgeous plants for shipment extremely carefully, however we do ask that you keep in mind that once they leave our store, we cannot guarantee how carefully they are handled in transit. We cannot guarantee they have been sung to or talked to by the postmen!
So, if a leaf is a little bent, bruised or maybe a small stem broken off, we cannot control this. If by some chance your plant did not arrive alive, never fear, we have got you covered just email our customer service team email@example.com and we will either replace the plants pronto or refund you.
