About the plant:
Ficus Lyrata is a tree-like plant characterized by its large green violin-shaped (lyre-shaped) leaves with a wavy edge and pronounced veining. Ficus Lyrata bambino (in English Dwarf fiddle leaf fig ) is a dwarf cultivar that, unlike the classic Lyrata, saves space and grows smaller (approx. 1 m). It comes from tropical Africa. Ficuses are among the unpretentious, fast-growing indoor plants that contain latex - a white liquid. Ficuses can be shaped and thickened by pruning.

The dwarf Ficus Lyrata Bambino stands out in large spaces with its exotic appearance. It needs support to grow. The lower leaves may drop over time, which is normal for older specimens of this variety.
