Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by neemta Has all but died in less than a month!
I am not a novice in keeping house plants alive and about 2 weeks ago the distal edges of the leaves all started turning brownish. I spoke to the service that takes care of our corporate plantings (which include several Ficus) and he advised to carefully trim the discolored edges off using sharp scissors and in a natural looking shape. When I held the leaves to trim them all but 4-6 at the top have fallen off.
Unfortunately I threw away all the fallen leaves or I would have included a picture, but I did attach 2 pictures of what is left of the plant.
Don't know if it was mishandled during shipping or just a bum plant.
Other plants I have gotten at Home Depot (on line and in store purchase) are doing fine.

The plant arrived earlier than expected and was packaged quite well. I was quite impressed the plant was fully intact, arrived with clear direction on what the plant likes and how to maintain it. I was so happy with the product I ordered a second Ficus Pandurata Bush and a Mother InLaws Tongue Plant. I will definitely order again and really appreciate the quality product Del Rey Plants provides. Very happy with my purchase. I wonder if they have this particular plant available all year round? I would love to send one as a holiday gift.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EHJ11 Beautiful, healthy plant!
I was initially very unsure about ordering this plant through the mail, but to my surprise, it arrived totally intact and in excellent condition! My plant had only one stem, which was actually fine with me because the leaves were bright green and full. The root ball was in good shape as well and not completely dried out. I made sure to water it right away after I put it in its new pot, but these plants only need to be watered about once a week--I learned that the hard way! :) If you can't find these in stock in the store, I highly recommend ordering it--fiddle leaf figs are hard to come by and they really complete a room!

I was really hoping to get one of the gorgeous looking plants that so many others have received, but I guess I was one of the unlucky ones. If I had seen this plant in the store, I would NOT have bought it. It came packaged well enough, but the plant is one of the poorest looking I have seen. For the specific plant I received, I think the quality and value are poor considering it's so ugly and looks like it has already dropped quite a few leaves. I only gave it 2 stars because they shipped it well.
Unfortunately they don't carry this in the store, so I can't pick out my own. I will be returning the one I have and ordering another one. Fingers crossed that I get one of the beautiful ones next time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ttnali Just do it! Better than I expected
Based on the mixed reviews I did not have high expectations for this tree but the price was right so I took the risk. I could not have been more pleased. "Phil" as I named it arrived well packaged and healthy . I unboxed Phil, watered immediately, cleaned the leaves and allowed him to breathe and acclimatize for 2 days before transplanting. I followed the planting tips- slightly larger pot than the root ball, gravel at the bottom for proper drainage (since I did not use a pot with holes at the bottom) and nice rich soil. Phil is very happy at my home sitting at the corner of the room with access to natural but filtered light from our bay window. He already sprouted new leaves so I know he's doing great. BUY THE DARN PLANT! :)

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PlantLover Fiddle Leaf Fig Condition
I received my Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree on January 16. I must admit, I am writing this review in case I need to request a credit or new tree. I have wanted to buy the Fiddle Leaf Fig for months but to my surprise I could not find one at any nursery or warehouse store locally. After reading the reviews, I decided to order one with the hope that mine would arrive with little to no damage. The tree did arrive in tack but there are three leaves which have been torn, four leaves with a brownish/yellowish scars on the leaves. I noted that another reviewer noticed bugs on their tree. I too noticed, three different bugs in the soil and or on one leaf of my tree as well as a small mushroom plant. I am hoping my tree lives. At a distance the tree looks fine, but up-close you can see the brownish/yellowish spots on the leaves and the broken leaves. I also purchased a Burgundy Rubber Plant other than the fact that it arrived with about 2 inches of red wood mulch inside the pot the condition of the leaves were good. But ... I also found the same bugs in the soil of the Rubber Plant as I found in the soil of the Fiddle Lead Fig tree. I have attached photos.
