The "fiddle leaf fig" as it is called due to the shape of its leaves (lyrata meaning fiddle) is a beauty to some and a monster to others.
It's a matter of taste. We like them a lot.
Easy to maintain, they like to dry out a little between watering. When happy in their surroundings, Ficus lyrata will grow huge but can be easily controlled with judicious pruning.
