Hi Tim,

Ficus Lyrata is a house plant and does not like too much water. See website below.

I agree with Lyn, but also best grown in a very hot sunny spot. Dryness doesn't hurt it. In March/April, chop it down to about 10cm and up it will sprout again! I have a bush about 1m x 50cm in a square of soil between the path and the house wall of about 50cm x 30cm, which it has to share with a climbing rose. It's been there since we moved in 17 years ago!

Good morning Dove and KEF

Been up for a couple of hours already, but decided to read the news first. It will be another hot day here too, more lounging under the tree, reading and dozing, but watering first.

The thought of walking around a reservoir has me sweating (pardon, perspiring) already KEF. I would definitely jump in. It's a nice way to remember people though.

Have an enjoyable day both of you and all the others still to wake up.

 

 

Good Evening FORKERS

Posted: 13/07/2013 at 20:48

Hi all, very productive day today, NOT! Quick shop in the morning, got some winnings, 3 packs of fresh salmon 25% off as tomorrow is Sunday and shops are shut, use-by date Monday, so straight in the freezer! Spent the rest of the day on the lounger under the acer negundo flamingo, reading a book, drinking raspberry cordial and having the occasional catnap.

Hope you don't mind me beating you to the kitchen spam Dove. It's still there, nobody in the office on the weekend, I expect.

Catching up on all the other new threads now, can usuallly learn something new.

Have a good evening, all, hopefully outside with a cool drink.

I think there are probably more roots than earth in the pot. I would repot it now, in ericaceous compost as Dove has said, also in a much bigger pot. This shrub grows into a small tree.

Better not be! But they are quite cute, except when they get in your hair!
