Dwarf Fiddle Leaf Fig – Ficus lyrata “Bambino’
Exotic (western Africa) | Part shade  | H 1m  |  W  40cm

Dwarf Fiddle Leaf Fig derives its name from the violin or fiddle shape formed by its leaves. It enjoys a well-lit aspect with medium-bright light and is particularly partial to a cosy spot with direct morning sun. It doesn’t like harsh direct afternoon sunlight as this can burn and damage the leaves. Avoid growing in positions with insufficient light, as it will adversely affect your plants growth. Look out for slow growth, dropping its leaves and stretching towards any available light source. To prevent your plant from not thriving rotate the pot a quarter turn each month.

The large rounded glossy leaves and bushy growth habit make it a truly fantastic potted specimen.

Category / Uses: great as a feature plant in any size garden; happy in a container or as an indoor plant (likes humidity).

Position / planting / care: special potting mix, well drained soil. Remove dust from foliage with a damp soft cloth to allow the plant to breath and absorb moisture. Mist foliage with a trigger sprayer to keep plants looking fresh and increase humidity. You may need to increase the humidity within the room during winter if artificially heating the room. Avoid over watering.
