Watering Ficus Lyrata
With Wickplants, this becomes much easier. How? With the unique watering system of Wickplants, your Ficus Lyrata never gets too much or too little water. The plant takes care of itself. Ficus Lyrata is equipped with a wick. When the houseplant is thirsty, it draws its water from the water reservoir by means of the wick. So you never have to think about the fact that Ficus Lyrata needs more water in summer than in winter. All you have to do is refill the water reservoir. When should I refill the water reservoir? When the red bar in the water meter starts to drop down, the water reservoir needs refilling. In this way, your Ficus Lyrata gets the right amount of water it decides for itself!
Location of Ficus Lyrata
What else should I do to keep my Ficus Lyrata beautiful for as long as possible? With Wickplants, the right position is very important to enjoy your new houseplant for a long time. Watering is a thing of the past, but it needs to be in the right spot. What is the right spot for my Ficus Lyrata? Ficus Lyrata needs a spot with plenty of daylight. Ideally, the Tobacco plant should be in a bright spot close to the window. It needs this to grow further. If Ficus Lyrata is in a spot that is too dark, it will not produce new leaves and leaves will soon fall off. A spot close to the window will ensure that this houseplant remains at its most beautiful and produces many new leaves in spring and summer!
Nutrition for Ficus Lyrata
The soil of Ficus Lyrata contains nutrients. After 10 weeks, Ficus Lyrata has often used up these nutrients. After this period, Ficus Lyrata will enjoy getting some nutrition. Take care! Only give Ficus Lyrata some extra nutrition in spring and summer! In autumn and winter, Ficus Lyrata is in a dormant state. Then, extra nutrition can even harm this houseplant. So only give Ficus Lyrata extra nutrition in spring and summer!
Pruning Ficus Lyrata
Would you like to give Ficus Lyrata a bushier look? Then give it a pruning job. Ficus Lyrata does not naturally branch very quickly. Pruning the tobacco plant will ensure that it will create new shoots. Note! This is best done in spring. It takes the Ficus Lyrata a lot of strength to recover from pruning to create new shoots here. Ficus Lyrata recovers fastest from this in spring! You can also prune back Ficus Lyrata when it gets too big for its spot. Ficus Lyrata will then create new shoots. It will then need to be pruned more often. Make sure you do this in spring!
