Native to tropical Africa where they thrive in wet and warm conditions, Ficus lyrata are extremely popular houseplants as their large leaves add an instant tropical vibe to any room. Meet their care requirements and these fast growers can be very rewarding.
- Require very bright light, but no direct sun on the leaves. A south facing window is ideal.
- From spring to fall, water when the top inch of soil gets dry to the touch. Water less often in winter.
- Consistency is key to success - consistent temperature, consistent watering, and consistent humidity.
