Ficus lyrata "Bambino"
This variety of Ficus lyrata has small leaves as the tree mature! The tree can still get full size like other lyrata, but the leaves stay about the size as pictured. You could mistake this tree as a big bush when the foliage fills out!
THESE REQUIRE A VERY BRIGHT SPACE. THIS PLANT WILL NOT DO WELL IN LOWER LIGHT.
These need bright indirect light but they can handle 2-3 hours of direct sun if it is morning or evening light. Ficus can go somewhat dry in the soil between thorough waterings. Usually it is best to wait until the soil is about 3/4ths of the way dry from the top. This can usually be between about once week for juvenile Ficus this size, though you will always want to ensure it is dry before watering! When re-potting use a semi-coarse soil that will drain well.All of our plants are ethically sourced from certified U.S. nurseries. We strongly condemn the poaching of plants or wild collection.
