Ficus Lyrata can also be known as the Fiddle Leaf Fig. This variety has large strangely shaped glossy leaves that grow in a whorl up the long straight stem.
Water: Only the top inch of soil is dry. Test this by sticking your finger in the soil. Pretty soon you'll figure out about how often you need to water. Keep in mind that this may fluctuate based on seasonal humidity, etc.
Light: Keep your fiddle leaf fig in bright, indirect light. In other words, you want it to have a lot of light, but not sunbeams falling directly on it.
Food: Fertilise once a month during growing seasons, but not in winter.
Repotting or Trimming the Root Ball: When roots begin to grow out of the bottom of the pot, either re-pot into a container that's a couple inches bigger or trim the rootball, being sure not to reduce the roots by more than 20 percent. (This latter option also keeps the plant from getting too big, if that's a concern).
Cleaning the Leaves: Because of their large surface, fiddle leaf fig leaves tend to collect a lot of dust. To keep the plant healthy (dust can block light absorption), wipe dust off with a soft cloth.
