Popular & Eternal

ORIGIN: Tropical Asia
FAMILY: Moraceae
PLANT TYPE: Perennial

LIGHT: The Ficus Lyrata is an upright houseplant of around 40cm up to 3m high for large subjects, which likes a light exposure without direct sunlight.

CARE: Watering should be moderate, once a week in summer. Wait for the substrate to dry on the surface between 2 waterings because its roots fear excess humidity. Do not let the water stagnate at the bottom of the saucer.
Its preferred temperature is between 15 and 25 ° C.

Bring green plant fertilizer every month from spring to fall and spray its foliage regularly.

Regularly pinch the plant above a leaf to promote branching and cut it back in half when it begins to thin out at the base.

In winter, reduce the water supply to once every 15 days and stop fertilizing.

REPOTTING: Repotting is preferably in spring, approximately every two years in a soil for green plants. Larger subjects simply need to be surfaced (replacement of the topsoil).

EXTRA: It's an apartment palm tree! He is THE KING!
