COMMON NAME: Fiddle leaf fig tree
BOTANICAL/SCIENTIFIC NAME: Ficus lyrata, Ficus pandurata
LIGHT: A brightly lit spot is needed without direct sunlight, although a small amount of daily sun is good (not mid afternoon sun).
WATERING: Water when the top soil becomes slightly dry and reduce watering in the winter. The worst thing to do is to over water (not underwater) because lack of water is easily fixed, unlike the damage from over-watering.
SOIL: A good draining potting soil is needed which could include pine bark and perlite.
HUMIDITY: Normal room humidity is fine, but increase the humidity during the winter if artificial heating is used within the room.
FERTILISER: Once a month, high in Nitrogen, to encourage growth of evergreen leaves.
SIZE: height: 160cm. approximate
