Indoor Tree 1.5m Large Ficus Lyrata | Fiddle Leaf Fig


Ficus lyrata, commonly known as the Fiddle Leaf Fig, is a popular and visually striking houseplant prized for its large, glossy, violin-shaped leaves. Here's a profile of the Ficus lyrata along with basic care guidelines:

Plant Profile:

  • Scientific Name: Ficus lyrata
  • Pot Size: 400mm 
  • Height: around 1.5m
  • Common Name: Fiddle Leaf Fig
  • Origin: Native to western Africa, including countries like Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Ivory Coast.

Basic Care Tips:

  1. Light: Fiddle Leaf Figs thrive in bright, indirect light. They require a lot of light to grow properly. Place them near a window with filtered sunlight, or if possible, provide them with some direct morning sunlight. Avoid exposing them to harsh, direct afternoon sun, which can scorch the leaves.

  2. Temperature: Maintain a temperature range between 65-75°F (18-24°C). Avoid exposing your Fiddle Leaf Fig to temperatures below 50°F (10°C), as this can damage the plant.

  3. Watering: Allow the top 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm) of the soil to dry out between waterings. Water thoroughly when the soil is slightly dry but not completely parched. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so it's essential not to keep the soil constantly soggy.

  4. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix rich in organic material. A mix designed for houseplants or tropical plants is suitable.

  5. Container: Choose a pot with drainage holes to prevent water from accumulating at the bottom. While Fiddle Leaf Figs like being somewhat root-bound, make sure the pot allows for proper root development.

  6. Fertilizing: Feed your Fiddle Leaf Fig with a balanced, diluted liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop feeding in the fall and winter when the plant's growth slows down.

  7. Pruning: Prune your Ficus lyrata as needed to maintain its desired shape and remove any leggy or yellowing growth. Regular pruning can help create a bushier appearance.

  8. Pests: Watch for common houseplant pests like spider mites and mealybugs. If you notice any infestations, treat your plant promptly with neem oil or insecticidal soap.

  9. Repotting: Repot your Fiddle Leaf Fig every 2-3 years or when it has outgrown its pot. Choose a slightly larger container, and refresh the potting mix during the process.

Ficus lyrata is a visually stunning houseplant that can make a bold statement in your indoor space. With proper care and attention to its specific needs, it will thrive and become a focal point in your home.
