Bambino Fiddle Leaf Fig derives its name from the violin or fiddle shape formed by its leaves. It enjoys a well-lit aspect with medium-bright light and is particularly partial to a cosy spot with direct morning sun. It doesn't like harsh direct afternoon sunlight as this can burn and damage the leaves. Avoid growing in positions with insufficient light, as it will adversely affect your plants growth. Look out for slow growth, dropping its leaves and stretching towards any available light source. To prevent your plant from not thriving rotate the pot a quarter turn each month.
Remove dust from foliage with a damp soft cloth to allow the plant to breath and absorb moisture. Mist foliage with a trigger sprayer to keep plants looking fresh and increase humidity. You may need to increase the humidity within the room during winter if artificially heating the room.

Indoor plants love warm, tepid water. Water when you stick your finger into the soil to your first knuckle and the soil feels dry. Avoid overwatering which can cause rot. You'll need to reduce watering in winter.
Use clean, sharp secateurs to remove spent leaves, first check there are no pests causing the problem.
To keep your plant at a particular height, prune the top to your desired height.
