Ficus Pumila Variegated aka Creeping Fig - 8" pot

Size Chart
Regular price $60.00

Like all Ficus, this full and leafy Creeping Fig is pretty easy to care for. You'll need a bright room but away from direct sunlight. It will do ok in low light conditions but it will grow more slowly and likely drop leaves. Key to keeping this one happy is warmth and moisture. It wants to be moist at all times, so check it every couple days by sticking your finger into the soil up to your knuckle, if it's dry it's thirsty. Like all tropical plants, don't let it sit in water or you risk root rot. A light misting every other day will be lovely. 

Ficus Pumila aka Creeping Fig comes in an 8" plastic growers pot, plant height ranges around 8" from the base of the  but is hanging tendrils rather than vertical growth.

Ficus Overview

Native to the tropics, including Asia, America and Africa, the Ficus belongs to the fig genus with hundreds of Ficus species out there. A mainstay in many offices and homes because they look like a typical tree with a trunk and canopy, the Ficus is also commonly called the Ficus Tree, Weeping Fig and Fig Tree – yes, the latter being the one that produces the fruit. Regardless of their size, they’ll always maintain their ‘tree-like’ appearance with dark and/or variegated foliage. Ficuses add a splash of colour and lushness to any home, but you’ll want to be mindful when you’re shopping for Ficuses since they have a reputation for being finnicky house plants. They shed leaves at the very first sign of stress, which can be very off-putting for someone who doesn’t like to break out their broom and dustpan too often.
