The Fig is a small deciduous tree or large shrub that grows up to 7–10 metres tall with large leathery leaves. Its fragrant leaves are 12–25 centimetres long and 10–18 centimetres wide, and are deeply lobed (three or five lobes).

Landscape Uses

Ornamental or fruit tree

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.
