Ficus Lyrata (Fiddle Leaf Fig) Plant Care Guide


Lighting: A Fiddle Leaf Fig requires bright indirect light.

Water: A Fiddle Leaf Fig requires less water than other ficus trees. Allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out and the leaves to become soft and flexible before watering.

Soil: Use a well-aerated potting soil that holds water but still drains quickly.

Temperature: Fiddle Leaf Fig trees do well in temperatures between 60°-80°. Keep all types of ficus trees away from air conditioners, cold drafts, and heating vents. Intense cold or heat causes leaf drop.
