About the plant: Ficus Lyrata(fiddle leaf fig in English ) is a tree-like plant characterized by its large green leaves of a violin (lyre) shape with a wavy edge. In room conditions, these leaves with pronounced veining can grow up to 30 cm in size. It comes from tropical Africa. Ficuses are among the unpretentious, fast-growing indoor plants that contain latex - a white liquid. If the plant is not limited by a low ceiling, it can grow to a height of several meters. Ficuses can be shaped and thickened by pruning.
Ficus Lyratastands out in large spaces with its exotic appearance. It needs support to grow. The lower leaves may drop over time, which is normal for older specimens of this variety.

Every plant is different, just like us humans. Please allow for a possible deviation in appearance compared to the product photo.
The plant needs enough diffused light for healthy growth. Avoid direct sunlight, which could burn the leaves. The ideal site is the north and east side near the windows or the west side with fading weak sunlight.
Water regularly, but always wait for at least the top layer of the substrate to dry. Ficuses do not tolerate overflowing and standing in water. During the winter, water less and beware of cold water, rather use water at room temperature.
Overwatering and overwatering, root rot: Most often, you can recognize a ficus that has been overwatered by the fact that its leaves begin to fall, which can also turn yellow or develop brown spots.
Draft: Ficuses are sensitive to temperature changes. You can tell that the plant has suffered a temperature shock by the leaves, which turn brown and fall off.
Change of environment: Ficuses do not tolerate changes (e.g. habitat) well. Therefore, always think carefully about where and when you will move the ficus. The plant reacts to new, unsuitable conditions by shedding leaves.
Burns of the leaves: Beware of direct light, which can burn the leaves of the plant, causing brown spots to form on them.
