Is this a houseplant? Are these plant leaves OK?

Hi Judy
I Live in Houston. I did buy this plant at IKEA about 3 years ago. I suspect that since it was at the store it should be an indoor plant. I did once leave it outside and it was summer time so the poor plant almost died. I have it inside ever since. I water it twice a week. And I’m trying to give it some more sunlight but seems to me it does not like it. One of the leaves did turn yellow so I did move it to a window where it does not get direct light. I’m worried because I see this plant is not as strong as the ones at the store.
Any advice?
Thank you!

Your picture is a little dark, but I think the plant is a Ficus Lyrata (Fiddle Leaf Fig). Here’s a picture; what do you think?
