These plants are native to tropical parts of Africa, where they thrive in very warm and humid conditions. They are relatively tough plants that can withstand a less-than-perfect environment for a fairly long time.
Ficus lyrata are perfect as focal points of a room if you can situate them in a floor-standing container where the plant is allowed to grow to at least 6 feet. They’re fairly fast growers and can be potted at any point in the year.
