Description: A close relative f the Fiddle Leaf Fig, this plant is the national plant of India, also known as a Banyan Tree. Easier to care for than a Fiddle Leaf Fig, and has a smaller growth habit and appearance. It can be distinguished from the fiddle leaf by its smaller, fuzzy leaves and smooth, cream-coloured trunk. The leaves are gorgeous and leathery, getting quite large and sporting prominent creamy veins throughout. A lovely accent piece for larger spaces in your home.

Shape:  Upright
