fiddle leaf fig - Ficus lyrata 'Bambino' & pot cover combination

  • Position:bright but indirect light
  • Soil: fertile: good potting compost
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: approximately 35cm (including pot)
  • Pot covers: Includes a 14cm pot cover

    The leaves of this lush evergreen houseplant are large, leathery, and a glossy rich green, and given time (and the appropriate care) it will grow into quite a tall and impressive specimen that does not require too much maintenance.

  • Home care: These are easy plants to care for as long as you are careful with the watering. Only water once the compost is dry to touch, and make sure that the plant isn't left standing in water. You can mist the leaves to increase the humidity - and occasionally wash the leaves with a damp sponge or cloth to keep them glossy. Try to maintain an average temperature no lower than 12°C in the winter, and avoid any sudden drops in the temperature and cold draughts.
