Ficus Lyrata Standard


If you have a bright spot indoors, Ficus lyrata (also called fiddle leaf fig) makes for one of the most dramatic trees you can grow. It features large, thick, dark green leaves that almost have a leathery texture. It’s a relatively slow grower inside. It is grown and shipped fresh from our farm direct to your front door.

  • Adds height and structure to homes and offices.
  • Can grow about 8 feet tall in time.

Light Level: Direct Sunlight

This plant loves direct sunlight. Place it by a window or on a porch that gets direct, natural light for at least a portion of the day.

Water Level: Thirsty

This plant can only go 1-2 weeks without water so check on it weekly and add water every time the top two inches of soil dry out.

Quick Tips

Like many houseplants, fiddle leaf fig would rather be too dry than too wet, so if you’re unsure about whether it needs water, wait a day or two before checking again.

Plant Bio

Ficus lyrata

While many of our most common houseplants come from the jungles of South America or Southeast Asia, fiddle leaf fig comes from Africa. A full-size tree (capable of hitting 100 feet tall outdoors), it likes lots of warmth and light. Too little light is the most common challenge for this plant indoors, so be sure to give it a bright spot with lots of natural or artificial light (or a mix of both). As is the case with many ficus varieties, it may drop some of its leaves in response to shock—such as being moved from one set of growing conditions to another.
