Ficus Petiolaris one is a a relatively less common and hard to find member of the ficus family, we adore her for its hot pink veins on each leaf.

130mm Pot

A native of Mexico, it has a common name of rock fig, because it is often found growing in rocky areas where the roots stretch over rocks in search of rooting soil. The develop a large and distinctive lump at their based, which is called a basal caudex, which adds to the loveliness of this plant.

Ficus petiolaris is a very easy houseplants. It thrives in part sun to part shade in well-drained potting mix however as with members of this family, kept it to the dry side to prevent over-watering and certain death. To promote growth, fertilise regularly over the summer months.

This easy to grow collector's plant is one that will surely start conversations. The hot pink veins on its green-silvery leaf is a contrast to the large and distinctive lump at their based, which is called a basal caudex.

This ficus is a great choice for bonsai because its caudex that can wrap itself around a rock and eventually split it in two.

It grows best with moderate water and partial shade and it can grow to 3-6 metres high if not pruned and given enough space to grow.

If you have heating units or air-conditioners, it is best to avoid placing plants underneath or next to them. This is because of the air blowing out from these units can be extremely hot or cold which can leave a healthy plant burnt, damaged and stressed. We recommend the Australian made Munash Organics soil food & foliage spray or The Plant Runner Plant Food or neem oil to keep you plants happy and healthy!
