    Ficus Lyrata - Tobacco plant - 100 cm - Artificial plant

    The Ficus Lyrata is originally from Africa. When you let the large leaves of the Ficus Lyrata dry, you can roll them into cigars. Hence the Dutch name: Tabaksplant. A real tobacco plant needs a lot of sunlight. But you can place this beautiful green artificial plant anywhere in the house. The leaves of the tobacco plant look a bit like a violin. That is why the Ficus Lyrata is also known as the fiddle leaf plant. This popular artificial plant can hardly be distinguished from the real thing. Even when you touch it, you will still doubt.

The Tobacco Plant, also known as the Fiddle Leaf Plant or Ficus lyrata, is a popular choice as a houseplant due to its impressive and decorative leaves. Native to the rainforests of West Africa, this plant has large, glossy leaves that resemble the shape of a violin or fiddle leaf, hence its name. With the right care, the tobacco plant can be a wonderful addition to any interior.

The Tobacco Plant thrives in light to semi-shaded environments. It is ideal to place it near a window where it can receive indirect sunlight. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves, so it is important to protect the plant from strong sunlight. The tobacco plant also needs a constant temperature between 18°C and 24°C, and it thrives best in a humid environment. Regular spraying can help increase humidity and keep the leaves healthy.

As for watering, the Tobacco plant has a moderate water requirement. It is important to keep the soil evenly moist, but not soggy. Over-watering can lead to root rot, while under-watering can cause leaves to turn brown and drop. A good rule of thumb is to let the top inch of the soil dry before watering again. It is also recommended to use rainwater or distilled water, as the tobacco plant can be sensitive to the chemicals in tap water.

Over time, the Tobacco plant can grow quite large, so it is important to prune it regularly to maintain the desired shape and size. You can remove dead, damaged, or diseased leaves to keep the plant healthy. It is also possible to propagate the plant by taking cuttings from healthy branches. Make sure the cuttings have developed enough roots before transplanting them into a separate pot.

Although the Tobacco plant is generally unaffected by pests, it can sometimes be susceptible to mealybugs and spider mites. If you notice signs of infestations, you can remove them by wiping the leaves with a damp cloth or using a mild soap solution. Be sure to completely remove all pests and eggs to prevent re-infestation.
