CareGeneral Maintenance: Ficus Lyrata are a plant species known to develop 'freckles'. This is actually edema from moisture stress. This is caused by irregular watering and too much moisture left on the leaves. They are known to be finicky plants, but they aren't impossible to care for. Note that if moved or unhappy, they will drop leaves but will perk back up.
Temperature: Does well in temperatures between 15°C - 30°C.
Light: This plant will grow best with bright filtered/indirect light. This can be achieved with any East or West facing window that gets a lot of sun. A South facing window with a sheer curtain over top is also ideal for these plants.
Watering: Water once soil becomes dry to the touch, and thoroughly water until water drains from the bottom of the pot. Allowing the plant to get too dry may lead to leaves dropping. Will do better if humidity is fairly high, which can be achieved via a pebble tray or misting.
Soil: Does well in any general houseplant soil mix, as long as it is well-draining.
Fertilizer: Fertilize once a month during the growing season (May - Aug) with a balanced liquid fertilizer.
