Ficus Lyrata Suncoast, Fiddle Leaf Fig


2 gallon, 18″ tall

Ficus 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.

Ficus lyrata are not especially demanding plants. One of the most common complaints about these plants is spotting on the leaves, which is especially noticeable in such a large-leaved plant. This spotting is usually caused by injury to the leaf, either mechanical damage or an attack of mites.

Growing Conditions

Tips:  This plant does not like to be turned or be moved frequently. Position the plant permanently and keep it clean by dusting with an old T-shirt. Stake and prune as needed. Ficus lyrata will only keep leaves that face the light; leaves facing a darker wall or corner will not last. Expect your ficus to loose leaves if you move or re-position the plant.

Light: 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.

Water: Keep moist, but don’t allow it to sit in water or it will drop leaves and suffer from root rot.

Soil: A good, fast-draining potting soil will do nicely.

Fertilizer: Apply Maxsea All Purpose fertilizer seasonally and up to monthly for plants not in perfect conditions, or recovering from stress.
