Climbing Fig Description

The Ficus Pumila Climbing Fig is a fast-growing evergreen vine that requires minimal care and attention.

It is native to East Asia but has been naturalised in many other parts of the world.

The plant is known for its small, vibrant green leaves which can add a pop of colour to any garden or indoor space.

Climbing Fig Maintenance

Try watering a once a week, but always testing the soil first to see if watering is necessary.

During winter, when the plant isn’t in an active growing phase you should reduce watering frequency and use tepid/room temperature water.

As with all plants, drainage is essential.
