In room conditions, these leaves with pronounced veining can grow up to 30 cm in size. It comes from tropical Africa.

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.
