Ficus lyrata 'Bambino' (dwarf fiddle leaf fig) 6"
Ficus lyrata 'Bambino'
Ficus lyrata, or more popularly the Fiddle Leaf Fig tree, has become an incredibly popular ornamental indoor tree. With the species originating from tropical to sub-tropical parts of West Africa, they are biologically not necessarily suited to be a houseplant, so they have garnered a reputation for having behavioral problems in cultivation. What we can say is in our experience - the Ficus lyrata is a creature of habit, and doesn't respond well to change. Providing it consistency with environmental conditions is key to it's long-term success. The 'Bambino' cultivar is a dwarf cultivar that will remain smaller and diminutive in size compared to the normal form.
Ficus lyrata 'Bambino' enjoys very bright indirect light to partial/brief direct sun exposure, a chunky, well-draining potting mix, moderate to high temps, and has no notable humidity demands, despite what tik-tok might have you believe (misting doesn't help these guys, or humidity for that matter). Allow to thoroughly dry in-between waterings, but don't allow to sit dry for any real amount of time.
May need to be repotted within 6 months - year.
May be toxic to pets and children.
6" nursery pots available.
