Dwarf Fiddle-Leaf Fig (Ficus lyrata 'Bambino')

The fiddle-leaf fig has been a popular plant with its recent resurgence. As many have experienced it isn’t the easiest of plants to care for and requires a good source of natural lighting and warmer temperatures. It can grow very large indoors and has beautiful violin-shaped leaves with strong veining. These specimen plants are perfect for styling in living spaces that allow them to be admired as large trees. - try them on the floor in your dining room or living room. Self-watering pots are perfect for keeping watering under control.

Care

LIGHT
Prefers indirect light with small amounts of direct light. Try placing your fiddle-leaf fig near a north facing window that gets 3-4 hours of direct light per day and indirect light for the rest of the time.

WATER
Only water once the topsoil has dried (use your finger to check) and water sparingly - one cup every two weeks is enough, even in the warmer months. If you live in a warm house assess whether your plant requires watering more regularly or a good drench. Reduce watering in the cooler months and allow the plant to dry out longer between drinks. Try reducing watering to one cup, once a month.

NUTRIENTS
Feed with slow-release fertiliser once every six months (refers to packaging for dosage).In the warmer months, feed monthly with a liquid fertiliser.

IDEAL TEMPERATURE
Warm.
