Ficus pumila 'Creeping Fig'
Assorted sizes 8" $50
Ficus pumila, commonly known as the creeping fig or climbing fig, is a species of flowering plant in the mulberry family, native to East Asia.
It is also found in cultivation as a houseplant.
The Latin specific epithet pumila means dwarf, and refers to the very small leaves of the plant.
Vigorous and fast-growing, this evergreen is a self-clinging climber or trailer that grows relentlessly, covering everything it encounters (walls, trellises and other structures) by adhesive aerial rootlets.
Provide partial shade or sun when growing outdoors.
Complete shade or full sunlight is not the best option for this houseplant.
When growing indoors, the houseplant should have access to indirect light, while avoiding direct afternoon sun.
Keep the soil moist, but never soggy.
The leaves of a ficus pumila deteriorate if the soil is allowed to repeatedly dry out.
Reduce watering during the winter.
Fertilize monthly in the spring, summer, and fall with a basic houseplant food, diluted to half the recommended strength.
