Description

Ficus Pumila Variegata is a vigorous, self-clinging, evergreen vine that holds securely to any surface via aerial rootlets. Leaves are heart-shaped, forming an interesting pattern. Plant covers large areas quickly and grows up to 10-15 ft. tall and 3-6 ft. wide.

Leaves are simple and small. Very pronounced venation on underside of leaf. Two distinct leaf types: juvenile foliage is very small and tend to hug wall, or trellis that it is growing on. Mature foliage is larger to 2 or 3 inches long and the stem get coarse and starts sticking out from rest of vine. Hairy pear-shaped fruits (to 2.5" long) may appear on outdoor plants throughout the year.

Environment

Creeping fig thrives well in indirect sunlight. Plant in a location which protected from wind and afternoon sun.  Grow indoors in a soil-based potting mix in bright indirect light or part shade. 

This plant is easily grown in humus-rich, moist, well-drained soils. Keep the soil moist by watering daily. Use general purpose fertilizer every 15 days

Landscape Use

Excellent way to add character to a garden wall. Creeping Ficus will attach itself very firmly to walls, wooden fences and the sides of houses or trees.

An area with bright indirect sunlight is the best place to keep a Ficus plant. They do not like constant changes in temperature hence do not like to be moved around too much.

Use a well draining soil to pot the ficus. You can alternatively also use a combination of coco peat, perlite and compost. Over watering is as detrimental as under watering for ficus. Make sure you pour just enough water into the pot to seep through the drainage holes. Best way to measure it are the leaves. If the leaves fold easily, you make have over watered it. If the leaves are crinkly you may have under watered it.
