Description
Commonly known as the Fiddle-leaf Fig, this spectacular house plant is grown for its impressive foliage. Each leaf has a stiff, leathery feel with a distinctive shape and pale, prominent veins. Ficus lyrata 'Compacta' is a handsome evergreen, with a lovely glossy sheen that reflects the light beautifully. Although it is a relatively slow growing plant, if given the correct growing conditions it will ultimately form a tall, slender specimen that makes a fine focal point for your home. Ficus lyrata 'Compacta' requires plenty of bright light making it a good choice for a conservatory or bright living room. Height: 300cm (118”). Spread: 100cm (39" ).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.

How to Grow
Although quite easy to grow, Ficus lyrata needs careful placement if it is to thrive. Fiddle-leaf Figs require plenty of light and tend to shed their leaves if insufficient light is provided. Position in a bright room, away from cold draughts and radiators, with a constant temperature of between 16C (60F) and 24C (75F). Ideally they should receive plenty of bright light, but avoid the direct glare of the sun.
More Info
Water regularly from spring to autumn, letting the surface of the compost to dry out between each watering, and allowing the pot to drain thoroughly. In winter, reduce watering but do not allow the compost to dry out completely. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. The foliage can be wiped with water and a soft sponge to remove any build-up of dust. The oldest leaves of Ficus lyrata will naturally die off as the plant grows. These should be carefully removed, to maintain a tidy appearance.
