The fiddle leaf fig (Ficus lyrata) is one of the trendiest houseplants around, given its frequent appearance in home magazines and blogs. Its large leaves are its focal point, so providing the right lighting is essential to keeping your plant lush in the bedroom setting.
Fiddle leaf figs thrive in the shady understory of the jungle, but some indirect light from an east-facing window helps these plants thrive. Set your fiddle leaf fig on a plate of pebbles filled with water to increase the humidity in the plant’s vicinity. In short, the fiddle leaf fig likes everything in moderation, including light, water, and temperature. Too much or too little of these elements will cause your plant to struggle.
