  • Light:F. lyrata requires bright, filtered light. These plants can even tolerate some full sun, especially if placed in an eastern-facing window. Plants that are kept too dark will fail to grow rapidly.
  • Water: Keep steadily moist, but don't allow it to sit in water or it will drop leaves and suffer from root rot.
  • Temperature: As a tropical plant, your fiddle-leaf fig likes it warm, between 60 and 80 F, and doesn't like extreme temperature variations. Position it away from air conditioning and heating vents.
  • Soil: Any good, fast-draining potting soil will likely do.
  • Fertilizer: Feed with a weak liquid fertilizer throughout the growing season. F. lyrata don't have remarkable fertilizer requirements.

These plants are native to the tropics, where they thrive in very warm and wet conditions. This makes them somewhat more challenging for the home grower, who is likely to have trouble duplicating these steamy conditions. However, they are relatively tough plants also that can withstand less-than-perfect conditions for a fairly long time.
