The ficus lyrata, often called the Fiddle Leaf Fig, is a stunning plant in all its forms. It needs bright, filtered light and likes its soil to stay moist. Do not overwater or allow it to sit in water. Many people will notice that leaves may show some brown spots or loose leaves from time to time. This is completely natural and part of the maturing of the plant. It is almost impossible to get a specimen that has no imperfections whatsoever.
