Ficus 'Bambino' (supplied in a 30cm black plastic nursery pot with drainage holes)
As with every plant you need to consider their natural habitat and try to match it as closely as possible. The Fiddle Leaf hails from the jungles of West Africa where it is dense, warm and wet so choose a bright location out of direct sunshine and cold draughts and keep the potting mix slightly moist at all times. To check, insert your finger a few centimetres below the surface. If the potting mix feels dry then water the plant. If it is moist hold off watering for a few days as the fig does not appreciate being over-watered.
Rotate your Fiddle Leaf regularly 90-180 degrees every few weeks to ensure even access to sunlight and to promote symmetrical growth.
