In the last several years, fiddle has been gracing the covers and spreads of magazines across the world, not just because it’s large violin-shaped foliage (hence the name) but also because its tall, columnar and sculptural form since it is not bushy, it is suitable for those tight corners/corridors. It waxy dark green foliage that forms a perfect contrast with light, neutral walls and furnishings. An eye candy indeed!

If you’re determined to get your hands on it, it’s worth investing in one that’s already substantial in size, as they can be tricky-to-please and slow to grow. Water only when the top inch or so of soil dries out. Their leaves will appreciate regular misting and a home with plenty of bright but indirect light.
