🌿 Botanical Name: Ficus lyrata (Ficus Lyrata 'Fiddle Leaf Fig')

💧 Care Level: Moderate. Ficus Lyrata 'Fiddle Leaf Fig' requires some attention to watering and light conditions but can adapt well to indoor environments with proper care.

📏 Size: Fiddle Leaf Figs can grow up to 6 feet to 10 feet (1.8 to 3 meters) tall indoors, with leaves reaching up to 12 inches (30 cm) in length.

☀️ Light: Place Fiddle Leaf Fig in bright, indirect light. It thrives in bright, filtered sunlight and prefers protection from direct sunlight, especially during the hottest part of the day. If grown indoors, place it near a north- or east-facing window where it can receive ample sunlight without being exposed to direct rays.

💧 Water: Water Fiddle Leaf Fig when the top inch (2.5 cm) of soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure thorough watering, allowing excess water to drain away from the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot.

💦 Humidity: Fiddle Leaf Fig prefers moderate to high humidity levels. Increase humidity by misting the foliage regularly or placing a humidifier nearby, especially in dry indoor environments.

🌡️ Temperature: Fiddle Leaf Fig prefers temperatures between 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C). Protect it from drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations, as extreme conditions can stress the plant.

🌱 Soil: Plant Fiddle Leaf Fig in well-draining, nutrient-rich soil. A mixture of peat moss, perlite, and coarse sand or bark works well. Ensure the soil is loose and aerated to promote healthy root growth.

🌱 Fertilizing: Feed Fiddle Leaf Fig with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength once a month during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing in the winter months, as the plant's growth slows down during this time.

🔄 Pruning: Prune Fiddle Leaf Fig as needed to maintain its shape and remove any dead, damaged, or yellowing leaves. Use clean pruning shears to make precise cuts, and avoid cutting into healthy green tissue.

🍃 Pests and Diseases: Monitor Fiddle Leaf Fig for common pests such as aphids, mealybugs, and spider mites. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil. Watch for signs of fungal diseases such as leaf spot and powdery mildew, and ensure proper air circulation around the plant.

Propagation: Fiddle Leaf Fig can be propagated through stem cuttings. Take a cutting from a healthy, mature branch and root it in a well-draining propagation medium. Ensure the cutting has at least two to three leaves attached and place it in a warm, bright location with indirect sunlight until roots develop.
