DescriptionFicus lyrata, commonly called the fiddle leaf fig, is a perfect indoor specimen plant. The plant features very large, heavily veined, and violin shaped leaves that grow upright on a tall plant. These plants are native to the tropics, where they thrive in warm and humid conditions. This makes them somewhat more challenging for the home grower, who is likely to have trouble duplicating these steamy conditions. Still, they are fortunately relatively robust plants that can withstand less-than-perfect conditions for a reasonably long time. Finally, f. Lyrata are really meant to be grown as larger specimen plants. They are perfect if you can situate them in a floor standing container where the plant is allowed to grow to 6 feet or more. (The trees commonly reach heights of 40 feet or more outdoors in tropical landscapes.) Because of their large leaves, these are not natural plants to trim down to a manageable size, though they can take modest pruning to shape.Ficus lyrata require bright, filtered light. They can even tolerate some sun, especially if placed in an eastern-facing window. Plants that are kept too dark will fail to grow rapidly.A good, fast-draining potting soil will do nicely.When it comes to watering keep moist, but don’t allow it to sit in water or it will drop leaves and suffer from root rot.
