What's your favourite house plant?

Ficus lyrata, commonly known as the fiddle-leaf fig

My favourite is the Fiddle Leaf Fig! Although, I haven't figured out how to take care of it well enough to make my two plants look as nice as the one in this photo. Fiddle Figs are known for being fickle! They don't like to be moved around much. They are native to the tropic environment so they need bright light and warm temperature.  I still haven't been able to figure out how much water they need though. They are also vulnerable to pests such as spider mites. 

I like the challenge though Smile
