: Adding a sculpture-like Ficus Lyrata, also known as Fiddle Leaf to a plant collection is a feeling only a plant parent can understand. At eplants, we bring you display-ready plants, with high-quality growth, compact shape and well-formed leaves Adopting
: A Ficus is a versatile plant that can do well in bright sun, shaded, lower light areas and even indoors. If you are growing them indoors, or on a well-shaded balcony, we recommend that you move the plant around to an spot that has better light once every few weeks Locating
: Since these plants are natives of the tropics they need porous, well-drained soils. They do well in a 30:30:30:10 mix of cocopeat, compost, coarse sand and Perlite Potting
: To mimic the conditions of Cameroonian rain forests, it is best to heavy water a Lyrata and let the soil dry out before the next watering. Tt is a good idea to hold off watering until the top layer of soil is dry to the touch. Drooping or yellowing leaves could indicate over-watering or poor drainage Watering
: If your potting mix is right, these plants will not require too much fertiliser. However, nourishing them with an organic liquid fertiliser two or three times a year will help them do even better. If you are using a chemical mix, ensure that it doesn’t touch the stalk or leaves. This could damage the plant Fertilising Ficus Lyrata is a naturally photogenic tree that can fit into any interior setting. Its gigantic leaf structure makes it a very decorative, almost sculpture-like plant, ideal for modern designer homes
