About Fidel

Originally from western Africa, Fidel will help your space achieve a tropical look with his lyre-shaped leaves. Besides the aesthetic appeal of his glossy dark green leaves, Fidel makes for the perfect house plant as he is tough and can cope with less-than-perfect conditions.


Fidel thrives in tropical conditions: you can recreate these by placing him in bright, filtered light and misting him regularly to increase the ambient humidity.


Although Fidel is coming from tropical rainforests, he does not enjoy sitting in water as this could make him suffer from root rot. Also, lack of humidity can cause browning on Fidel's lush foliage.


The worst thing to do is over-water Fidel, so wait until the top 2 inches of soil is dry before further watering. Fidel does not have a strong need for fertilizer, but feeding him with a diluted liquid fertiliser every month during growing season (Spring to Autumn) is preferred. Apply the fertilizer at half the rate recommended on the label.


Fidel's broad leaves will help with air purification, elimination of dust and humidity control, thus helping you prevent health problems such as colds, sore throats and coughs.
