Ficus Lyrata Little Sunshine is from the Moraceae family. This plant is a dwarf variety of the popular Fiddle Leaf Fig but it grows smaller and its lyrate-shaped leaves have a brighter green color.
Ficus Lyrata Little Sunshine only grows up to 3-4 feet in height, so it is suitable even for small living spaces.
Ficus Lyrata is a perfect indoor houseplant because it is compact, easy to care for and it also has an air-purifying and detoxifying effect.
Ficus Lyrata Little Sunshine prefers bright indirect light, and it needs around 6-8 hours of light per day. Scorching direct sunlight might burn its leaves and low light condition will stunt its growth.
This plant needs medium watering. Water only when the top 2'' of the soil is dry and drain well after each watering to avoid root rot. Water thoroughly and let the soil dry out between waterings.
This plant prefers well-draining soils that can retain some moisture. You can add some peat moss and perlite to regular houseplant soil to increase the drainage and aeration.
Ficus Lyrata plant should be kept in temperatures between 65°F-80°F and a high humidity level (at least 40-60%). Use a humidifier and mist your plant when the weather is dry, especially during winter.
This plant should be fertilized once per month during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.
This plant is mildly toxic so keep it out of reach of curious children and pets.

bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for

Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered
light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do
NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour
off any excess water after a few minutes.
The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot
area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended
periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
