Ficus Lyrata


(216 Reviews)

This plant is so trendy, it’s called the “it” plant – and the “it” has nothing to do with technology and everything to do with style.  The ficus lyrata, also known as a Fiddle Leaf Fig is sought after for its big, violin-shaped (that’s a fiddle down south) leaves and ability to take a prominent place in the décor of a big space.  Put it in a well-lit room and let it grow.

If you do not have a bright, sunny spot – on a patio or adjacent to an east, west, or (preferably) south window – please consider another plant from our low-light selections.  All Fiddle Leaf figs prefer bright light.

Our 30-Day Guarantee

We take pride in ensuring the well-being of your plants, guaranteeing their arrival in a happy and healthy condition. As part of our 30-Day Guarantee, if your plants do not meet this standard within 30 days of arrival, we offer free replacements. While minor signs of stress may be expected from transit, if the damage goes beyond slight imperfections, please contact us within 30 days of receipt to receive a complimentary replacement.


The Ficus Lyrata is a really great plant for beginners and experts alike, and designers will appreciate what it can do in a photo, as long as you are able to provide bright light. Here’s what you need to know if you’re getting a Ficus Lyrata:


This plant is a moderate to heavy drinker, and can go for 2+ weeks without watering with the proper sub-irrigation system, but we suggest you check it weekly during the first 6-8 weeks after you get it and during hot summer months.  See our watering guide for more information.


Next to watering, having adequate light is the most significant factor keeping your Lyrata happy inside.  Your best placement is near a window where the plant can get some sun light – east-, south- and west-facing windows are best.  It can also thrive in a room with strong ambient light.  If you want a good, sustainable indoor plant and don’t have good light, this is not the plant for you – unless you’re up for moving it for frequent trips to better lit areas.


The Ficus Lyrata likely will not need to be fed during the first 6 months after it has shipped.  During this time, it will use the residual nutrients from nursery production.  After 12 months, it can be fed quarterly with a complete fertilizer formulated for interior plants.  If your Lyrata is positioned on a porch in the south, it may need supplemental nutrition sooner than 12 months.  Keep an eye on the newer leaves – not the emerging ones; if the new leaves are yellow and the veins prevalent, it is possible it needs some nutrients.  Please refer to our nutrient guide for details.


Here’s one of the greatest benefits of this plant – its large leaves are easy to clean and, overall, there are fewer leaves than many other interior plants.  Simply wiping the leaves with a wet cloth usually does the trick.  For spots where something else (besides dust) has landed on your plant, use a mild soapy solution to wet the cloth; then wipe.


Many Fiddle Leaf Fig fans love to let this plant grow in all sorts of funky shapes.  If that’s not your style, and you want to maintain the plant’s height and girth, pruning cuts can be made just above any node (aka – right about a where a leaf attaches to a stem).  This will reduce the size of the plant and promote new growth from the point where the cut was made.  You can also trim or snap off leaves that have run their course.


Here’s another plus, this plant is not a big target for pests.  Scale, mealy bugs, and mites sometimes jump on, but they’re easily controlled by wiping the infested area with a soapy solution.  It can take several intermittent cleanings to rid the plant of the pests.


Here are a few warning signs that your Ficus Lyrata is getting the funk:

  • Leaf drop – If the lower leaves start to droop and then drop, it’s either :
    1. not getting enough light
    2. it’s getting too much water or
    3. (you guessed it), it’s not getting enough water

    Or…if you moved it from one light extreme to another, it could shed leaves.  The most likely issues (#’s 1, 2, and 3) are easily correctable.

  • Brown leaf margins – This is most likely from not enough light and under-watering.
  • Brown spots and mushy leaf spots – This might be from too much water or exposure to cold temperatures.

The best part about any of the above is that they’re easily corrected.  The key, however, is recognizing the signs early and making the adjustment before too much damage occurs.


It has been reported that the sap from a Ficus plant is poisonous to dogs, cats, and horses.  So, if you have a dog, cat, or horse, don’t let them ingest the sap.  It’s also been reported that the sap can cause allergic reactions for people too.  If you get sap on your skin, wash it off and wipe the area with rubbing alcohol; if it gets in your eyes, flush your eyes with clean water for 15 minutes.  If none of this helps, call a doctor.

    The plant is healthy and beautiful, and the instructions were very helpful. I was a bit disappointed with the FedEx service: plant took five days to get here, which seemed excessive, given the shipping cost. Also, unlike UPS, FEdEx gave no indication of the possible arrival time.

    • Sue Waltzer Verified Buyer

      Hi Maria – once we send the tracking information, you can click on the link and request status alerts or sign up for the FedEx Delivery Manager so you’ll know where the plant is at all times.

  22. Tori Verified Buyer

    Sue was absolutely wonderful to work with. My first fiddle fig was froze in transport last fall. She made sure I received a replacement this spring without any hassle. My only wish is that FedEx would take better care of items that say things like “fragile” or “live plant this end up”. When I helped unload my plant from their van it was located at the bottom of a pile, laying flat with a set of full-sized car tires laying on top of it. The plants plastic planter was smashed and there was slight damage, but all and all I am VERY happy with my purchase from PLANTZ. I would definitely recommend them for your plant needs!

    • Sue Waltzer Verified Buyer

      Ouch! Thanks for the nice comments but FedEx should definitely NOT have transported this with tires on top of it!! I’ve let our FedEx rep know that and am so glad the plant was ok!!!

    The ficus lyrata is dropping leaves and many have brown spots and will also drop. I am not happy with it and would like to have a replacement. The white bird is excellent!

    • Sue Waltzer Verified Buyer

      The spotting on the foliage is caused from either the soil staying too wet or it is not getting enough light. The plant can fail quickly if this is not addressed. I have sent you an email directly with some instructions so please try to get the plant into high light and allow the soil to dry down.
      Thanks – Sue

    If I could give it a 10 or a happy face with hearts around it, I would. I love how delivered with care it was, its packaged so delicately and made it to TX perfectly. The suggested video to watch so I know what and what not to do, the (Purchased) added irrigation system & soil sleuth makes my life so much easier and it is a very beautiful, healthy, green and well cared for Fiddle Leaf Fig. I added the moss which brings the whole plant together. His name is Newton. It will not be the last plant I order form, Thank you again.

    • Sue Waltzer Verified Buyer

      Thanks so much for the nice comments. We know that Newton will be very happy with you and please let us know if we can help in any way going forward.

  39. Diane Kennedy Verified Buyer

    The plant’s leaves are mostly all black. It was packaged very well. Much larger than I expected. I don’t remember the above large picture as the one that I ordered from.

    • Sue Waltzer Verified Buyer

      Hi Diane – I’m not sure I understand what you mean. If the leaves are turning black, it is not getting enough light or it is getting too much water. The leaves should be dark green. Could you please send us a photo of what it is doing? The lyrata is a high light plant and can fail quickly if it doesn’t get enough light or stays too wet.

  40. Karen A. Verified Buyer

    • Sue Waltzer Verified Buyer

      Unfortunately, we had too many customers discarding the components to the system so we decided to let everyone choose if they wanted it or not by allowing it as an add on. We can send you one if you’re able to install the wicks. I will reach out to you via email with some options.

    • Sue Waltzer Verified Buyer

      So glad we could spread some happiness!

  49. Christa S. Verified Buyer

    This is a beautiful specimen (14″ tree). But I wish I had splurged on 2 day shipping (rather than express saver… which is 3 day). It was July in Texas and it lost a few leaves during shipping, and some lower leaves arrived with brown spots. All those leaves (roughly 12) slowly fell off the following couple weeks.

    What remains is very happy, and it’s still attractive, but the bottom looks sparse. Another possibility might have been to go with the bush version… even if it lost some leaves, there would still be a bunch remaining!

    For what it’s worth, we’ve order three other plants from Plantz, and they’ve all arrived in perfect condition – even with 3 day shipping in summer. And everything, including this one, was packaged really well. Can’t go wrong with this company – the plants are amazing just like the photos! This species is just more sensitive to travel, I suspect.

    • Sue Waltzer Verified Buyer

      They are very sensitive and we recommend signing up for the FedEx Delivery Manager and customizing the delivery for a morning drop so they don’t spend the day in a hot truck. They all usually drop some foliage while they’re acclimating but it should settle down soon and start to produce new growth.

  55. Dengunie Verified Buyer

    I ordered the 3 foot tree and it didn’t last 3 months. I was so disappointed because I’ve wanted a fig tree for so long. I thought it would thrive but, I was wrong. Shortly after I received the plant the leaves started to turn yellow and they all fell off.

    • Sue Waltzer Verified Buyer

      We wish your would’ve reached out to us! The lyrata needs a bright, sunny window and a soil probe is a must have when ordering one of these. If it doesn’t get enough light and isn’t watered properly, it will fail quickly! I sent you some instructions and wish we had known you were having issues! Always reach out to us if you have questions or if something is going on with the plant! Always!!

    Plant came damaged with multiple tears in leaves, yellow spots and crinkling of leaves at the edges.

    I ordered a condolence gift for a dear friend who lost her dad to cancer. Because I live miles away and there were state-imposed travel restrictions, I couldn’t be there in-person with her when she was grieving. Making sure this plant arrived quickly and with the right sentiment attached suddenly meant everything to me. I was distraught wondering how to place an order on the weekend and once the order was placed, would the plant arrive on time? I was feeling anxious and heartbroken, and then I found Sue W. on the customer service team at Plantz. Sue treated me with compassion and understanding and went out of her way to make sure my friend knew I was thinking of her. I was sending more than a plant. I was sending comfort and peace to a loved one during a very difficult time. Thank you, Sue, for your help and kindness. Because of you, I will be a repeat customer for years to come. The Fiddle Leaf Fig is beautiful and cherished.

      Thank you for the very nice comments. It is terrible to hear of someone losing a loved one and even harder when our world is going through a crisis.

    If I could add a +sign to my rating, I would. The Fiddle Leaf Fig plant arrived in perfect condition, and our daughter, who was visiting, liked it so much that I ordered a second one as a gift. Customer service was also outstanding. They sent instructions ahead of delivery, then reached out to see how the plant was doing, even offering suggestions to make sure our purchase went smoothly and out new plant would do well.
    So far, so good, both plants are happy in their new homes and we look forward to having them for a long time.

    So far so good. Sue Waltzer has been very helpful in adding to my order and giving me watering tips.

  125. Pamela G. Verified Buyer

    I love this plant (actually bought two!)— its healthy, beautiful leaves, its height, how it brings nature into my home. I am still working with it, however, as the acclimation period is a bit wonky and I’m still trying to figure out its water appetite under the Plant Assure system, thus 4 not 5 stars. Once we figure this out, I’m sure it will merit a 5! Bravo to Sue Waltzer, who has been my plant partner, extremely attentive, full of suggestions and advice, and always accessible. We have become phone and email buddies.

  126. Linda Heller Verified Buyer

    I was just overwhelmed when I opened the very well wrapped package containing my large ficus tree.I don’t think I have ever seen one so beautiful. It’s very tall and full with healthy shining leaves. I definitely will purchase more from PLANTZ, and I will enthusiastically recommend them to anyone who desires to purchase a Ficus Lyrata Tree.
    Thank you so very much!

    Another great experience with Plantz. Received my Ficus Lyrata very quickly and in great condition. Your packaging of the plants really ensures they will arrive in the best possible condition. Setup was a breeze and this Ficus Lyrata is a great addition to my plant collection. It looks beautiful in my master bedroom.

    Sue Walther (aka Easter Bunny’s Assistant) was wonderful to work with. She understood the deliveries (one to Athens, Georgia and one to West Hollywood, California) were Easter surprises. My adult children were thoroughly thrilled when they opened the boxes…shocked it was possible to ship such beautiful trees as gifts. I have since visited my son and daughter-in-law in Athens. The tree IS, indeed, gorgeous. Thank you for delivering what you promised! 🐰🌳💗🌳💗🐰

    My fiddle leaf fig tree arrived in a slightly worn-looking box. I followed the instruction in getting it unpackaged. I couldn’t believe my eyes upon beholding the immaculate condition my tree was in. I ordered it for myself for my birthday and it is everything that I hoped it would be. Tall and healthy, with full, beautiful dark leaves. I love, love this beautiful, living piece of art that is now the crown jewel of my living room. Thank you.

It has acclimated to it’s new home so well and I have yet to lose a leaf – it’s gorgeous and I have received so many compliments from friends about it. They can’t believe it’s real it looks so good!

    I cannot say enough how pleased I am with not just my gorgeous new Lyrata, but Plantz as a company. I won a Christmas raffle with this fine specimen as the prize, and even though that made me a non-paying customer, Sue was beyond helpful to me – we exchanged almost a dozen emails leading up to and after I received this beauty, covering everything from appropriate placement in my home, shipping hold due to cold weather here in Virginia, and proper care. The website itself offers lots of valuable information also! As someone who has worked in customer service in some form or another for her whole professional life, I really appreciate the care and attention this company exhibits. Fantastic product, fantastic people. 💕

    Beautiful plant. I would like to see instructions for care that are more realistic/accommodating to a normal care for a plant in a home. Currently instructions require visualization of capillaries, but I placed my plants in their original container in a basket. It’s very difficult to visualize the capillaries. I need to put it in something because the pot it comes in is not visually appealing and puts my floors at risk of getting wet and dirty. I am certain most people put theirs in something.

    • Sue Waltzer Verified Buyer

      Hi – Our sub-irrigation set up is primarily to make it easier to care for the plants and helps to avoid over/under watering. We do offer a soil sleuth which will pull up moisture from the root zone so you can feel the soil moisture and water the plant when it dries out. Many of our customers don’t completely understand the watering needs of a plant and tend to over-water thinking that a plant needs to stay wet to survive when plants actually need to dry down in between watering. If the sub-irrigation that we provide with each plant isn’t working for you, I’d like to suggest that you purchase a soil sleuth which will help. In addition, we offer planters on or website that are a perfect fit and we also have their dimensions listed so you can compare and shop for your own style if we don’t have one that fits your decor. I hope this helps!

    Love it! I am so happy with my plant, it is absolutely beautiful! Sue was amazing! This company isn’t about a sale, they are about making sure their customers get the right plant for their space and the plants get a home/space they can thrive in. After placing my on line order, I received an email from Sue checking in to make sure I was aware of the needs of the particular plant I had ordered and even offered to help me find an alternative if the plant would not do well in the space I had in mind. The plant was delivered a day earlier than I had expected, carefully packaged with detailed directions. I WILL buy from Plantz again and highly recommend them.

    Your packing and shipping care, plus the quality of your plants is excellent. Your company was recommended to me by a friend who had used it to order her large Fiddle Leaf Fig and raved about the service and quality she experienced from your company. Otherwise I probably wouldn’t have taken a chance on ordering a plant online. I would highly recommend your company to anyone who finds it difficult to find a source for quality houseplants in their area. Plus, getting a bigger houseplant transported to your home is not always easy! So ordering it online solves that whole problem. There’s no way I could transport a big houseplant in my vehicle and get it home undamaged!

    Due to our Connecticut location, we appreciate how conscientious Plantz was about temperatures in the Northeast and how it would affect our plant. They monitored weather temperatures and shipped during the appropriate temperature window. Plant arrived in great condition. It arrived as depicted, large, single stem with 2 off branches. It tends to tilt to one side , not completely straight, yet perhaps will change when rotated. Water Instructions are very helpful and spot on, so make sure you read instructions included in package label. So far our new plant is happy and acclimating nicely. Thank you Plantz, looking forward to purchasing another fabulous plant.
