Ficus Pumila Ice Caps is commonly called Creeping Fig or Climbing Fig and is a native to East Asia. He is vigorous and likes to attach himself to surfaces by means of his aerial roots.

The crinkly, heart-shaped variegated white-edged leaves form on a fine stem which stick fast closely to its support.

When the plant grows up to become a big boy "matures" he starts to produce large, leathery adult foliage on horizontal, woody branches. 

The Ice Caps fig is a tough drought tolerant creeper once established.

Prune to control his rampant growth and try to remove any horizontal branches which stand out from the support and produce unattractive adult foliage.

Quick Facts: 

    • What to use me for: Great as an indoor hanging plant or as a statement plant that can climb onto a structure/shape i.e blank walls. *Take care when planting on paint & rendered surfaces as the aerial roots may mark
    • I grow to: I can just keep spreading up and out - 20-50cm medium grower
    • Where to place me: Indoors I like bright indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight and provide a brightly lit setting outdoors. It will also tolerate low lighting conditions.
    • Watering conditions: I don't like much water so make sure you let my soil dry out before watering again. I am drought tolerant once established so please don't overwater me. Liquid fertilise monthly during Summer. 
    • Soil Conditions: I like a good well-draining soil
