Overview

Ficus Lyrata Bush, also known as the Fiddle Leaf Fig, is best suited for indoor environments with bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions but may experience slower growth. Plant it in well-draining soil with drainage holes to avoid waterlogged roots.

Care Tips

Ficus Lyrata Bush is relatively low-maintenance. Keep the soil consistently moist, avoiding overwatering to prevent root rot. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Apply a balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Pruning is typically unnecessary, but remove any yellow or damaged leaves for aesthetic purposes.

Uses

Ficus Lyrata Bush is an excellent choice for indoor decoration, bringing elegance to homes and offices with its striking foliage. Its low-maintenance requirements make it suitable for both beginners and experienced plant enthusiasts.

Planting Tips

When planting Ficus Lyrata Bush in a pot, opt for well-draining soil and a container with drainage holes. Place it in an area with bright, indirect light. Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil is dry, allowing excess water to drain.

Maintenance

Regular maintenance involves proper watering and fertilizing during the growing season. Keep an eye out for yellowing leaves, which may indicate overwatering.

Protect the plant from drafts and cold temperatures to maintain warmth and humidity, which are optimal for growth.

Pests and Diseases

Ficus Lyrata Bush is generally resistant to pests but may occasionally attract mealybugs or spider mites. Monitor regularly and treat with neem oil or insecticidal soap if necessary. Ensure good airflow to prevent fungal diseases, and avoid overwatering to prevent root rot.
