Plant care

☀️ The Ficus Lyrata is a staple house plant. This plant will grow best with consistent indirect bright light. It is recommended to rotate every few months as the plant will begin to lean towards the light.

💧 It is important to water the Lyrata when the top 50-75% of the soil becomes dry, then thoroughly drenched until the water drains into the saucer. Empty the saucer if the water level is high so not to drown the roots. Lyratas are native to the tropics, they thrive in warm wet conditions. It is recommended to mist the leaves to increase humidity around your plant especially in the dryer winter months.

🌡 This plant enjoys warmer temperatures but adapts easily to your home climate. It does not like cold drafts so make sure to seal up drafty areas before situating.

✨ We recommend you feed your plant once during the spring and monthly the summer. Over-fertilization can cause the Lyrata to grow leggy and can even kill it. A little bit of fertilizer will go a long way to encourage growth and root health. No fertilizer is necessary during the winter when plant growth naturally slows.

☠️ Ficus Lyrata leaves are mildly toxic to humans and pets, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting.
