General Information: An evergreen tropical species of fig which originated in Indonesia.
Its light to dark gray trunk thickens well and aerial roots develop from the trunk and branches in
humid shady environments. The leaves are alternate, dark green, simple, lanceolate, one to three
inches long and only a half inch to three quarters of an inch wide. New leaves are bronze to pinkish
in color and usually curl to the right or to the left and straighten as they mature.
Lighting: The ficus will grow in deep shade to full sun. For best results in reducing the leaf and
internode size, grow in full or nearly full sun.
Watering: Many Ficus are very tolerant of being over or under watered, which makes them ideal for beginners. Ficus likes a daily misting to maintain humidity. Water regularly and never let the soil dry out completely.
