The Ficus lyrata - Violin plant

The Ficus lyrata is also known as the violet plant. It owes its name to the tremendously firm long leaves that it develops. In terms of care, this camp plant is generally satisfied. It owes its roots to the tropical rainforests, widespread throughout West Africa.

The violin-like leaves of Ficus lyrata are best cleaned with a damp cloth in order to prevent them from becoming dull and to preserve their shine.

A light pitch, out of the full sun, in a place where it is not too cold, is preferable, because this houseplant does not like to stand in the draught.
