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.

We wrote more about ficuses in our article .
- Overwatering and overwatering, root rot: Most often, you can recognize a ficus that has been overwatered by the fact that its leaves begin to fall, which can also turn yellow or develop brown spots.
- Draft: Ficuses are sensitive to temperature changes. You can tell that the plant has suffered a temperature shock by the leaves, which turn brown and fall off.
- Change of environment: Ficuses do not tolerate changes (e.g. habitat) well. Therefore, always think carefully about where and when you will move the ficus. The plant reacts to new, unsuitable conditions by shedding leaves.
- Burns of the leaves: Beware of direct light, which can burn the leaves of the plant, causing brown spots to form on them.
