Ficus Lyrata has huge, glossy, fiddle-shaped leaves with prominent veins. If you are looking for a Ficus with a difference, this one packs a punch with it's amazing flamboyant foliage. Leaves are much larger than most other Ficus, growing up to 30cm long and 13cm wide with a fabulous violin-like shape. Leaves often have brown spotting and markings particularly on the underneaths.

Ficus lyrata are perfect for adding some serious, air-cleansing, greenery to your indoor living space.

Please note: some minor leave damage can occur during transit. These are fast growing plants, so simply remove the affected leaves at the base of the stem. This may also encourage the plant to develop new growth at this point.

Ficus lyrata - Fiddle Leaf Fig Care & Info Guide

Light: Ficus lyrata prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate some light shade and some direct (but not harsh or midday) morning or afternoon sun.

Water: Water when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil moist at all times, but do not over water as this will cause brown spots and leaf drop.

Temperature: Ideal temperatures are 16-24°C. Avoid cold draughts.

Humidity: No specific requirements, although the occasional misting wouldn’t go amiss.

Feed: Apply a weak dose of a fertiliser once or twice a month during the growing season. View Plant Nutrition

Care tips: Insufficient light or incorrect watering can trigger brown spots and leaf drop. Adjust as necessary and your plant should quickly recover.

Air Purifying: This plant filters airborne toxins and is part of our clean air plant collection.

Height and Growth Rate: Ultimate indoor height 3m. Slow growing.

Toxicity: Considered poisonous, therefore keep away from children and animals.
