("Ficus lyrata Bambino", "Dwarf Fiddle Leaf Fig")
Ficus lyrata Bambino is your new air-purifying friend. It is slightly smaller than Ficus Lyrata, hence the name "Bambino". Beware! It's eye-catching green foliage will make it stand out in your botanical garden crowd and certainly attract some friends request for spare leaves. They are ideal house plants, adding rich, green foliage and filtering the air of unwanted pollutants at the same time
Our babies are 34cm high and 12 cm in diameter. We have a small number ready to be shipped to their new homes.
Use free-draining, top quality potting compost if you need to repot this dwarf fig tree. Ensure that the pot has holes in the base for drainage. Added grit or similar drainage material will help to avoid overwatering.
Ficus lyrata prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate some light shade and some direct (but not harsh or midday) morning or afternoon sun.
Water when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil moist at all times, but do not over water as this will cause brown spots and leaf drop.
