Ficus Lyrata, also known as Fiddle Leaf Fig, has large leathery leaves that resemble a fiddle.
Fiddle Leaf Fig likes high humidity and a bright spot. As most trees, it doesn’t like changes in the environment or regular repotting. Ficus Lyrata should be allowed to become pot-bound.
This plant is about 90 cm tall and comes in a regular nursery pot.
Light: a brightly lit spot is needed without direct sunlight, although a small amount of daily sun is good (not mid afternoon sun).
Watering: water when the top soil becomes slightly dry and reduce watering during the colder season.
Soil: a good draining potting mix
Pro Tip: remove the dust from the leaves on regular basis
This plant is toxic to humans and animals when ingested.
