Ficus Lyratas or Fiddle Leaf Figs are large-leafed trees that grow up to 10'+ indoors. There is also a small leaf variety called a compacta. Ficus lyratas are typically available in bush form or tree form.
Ficus lyratas do best with some direct sun or very bright, indirect light. Make sure to ease the plant into full sun (if it has not been) so it does not receive a sunburn. Insufficient light causes small leaves and the leaves to drop. Rotate the plant frequently to keep the plant growing straight and make sure light gets through to each side.
Water thoroughly until water comes out the bottom of the pot. In full sun, allow the top 30% of soil to dry out between waterings. If the tree is receiving less light, allow the top 50% of soil to dry out between waterings.
An ideal range is 60-80 degrees. It's best to keep the plant away from heating or cooling sources to prevent leaf drop or damage.
1x/month during it's active growing season (spring-fall).
Plant is toxic and should be kept away from children and pets.
