Ficus pumila minima 85mm

Grow me over your drab, brick wall and I will be sure to brighten up the place. I have small, oval-shaped leaves that are so glossy green, you're just gonna love me I know it! I'm a hardy, dependable coverup that will not let your ugly wall shine through.  

Description

I'm so not kidding when I say I'm the answer to your ugly wall prayers. I'm super fast-growing, drought-tolerant, hardy and can handle part shade. I do like my other names such as Creeping Fig or Climbing Fig just in case you're asking. I have small, oval-shaped leaves that cling to most surfaces (yes, even your unsightly wall that you thought you would never be able to cover). My new foliage is a nice shiny green and the older I get I turn to a leathery texture. 

It's probably good to note that if I love where I live I will move on in and grow up quickly and perhaps not take the hint when you want me to move out? Sorry but maybe if I start to get unruly, just give me a prune to keep me in line.

  • Quick Facts
  • What to use me for: I look cute indoors but I look my best covering an ugly fence, as a topiary or cascading over an entryway.

    I grow to: I will grow and spread nicely along a wall and generally reach about 3-4m across

    Where to place me: I like semi-shade or bright light indoors

    Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently.

  • Size
  • If you prefer your plants just that little bit bigger the 3 pack x 85mm pots is for you. 

  • Growing
  • Drink preferences: Once I have settled into my new home, I am drought tolerant 

    Potting needs: I will grow pretty fast so plant me in a pot with a drainage hole about 170mm in diameter. If you are planting me outside I like a free draining soil, no clay soil for me please. 

    Tips and tricks: Take care when planting on painted and rendered surfaces as my aerial roots may leave a mark. You can give me a haircut ever so often to keep me nice and presentable. 

  • Delivery
  • Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden - it's our plant promise guarantee!

    We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and fast, free delivery to your door.
