Fern Farm faviconDescription

  • Ficus Petiolaris aka The Rock Fig gets its name from growing roots over rocky areas in search of soil.
  • This plant is a perfect bonsai specimen and can easily produce a swollen trunk.
  • Newly emerged leaves are bright green with pink veins. As the leaf ages the colours intensify.
  • In the ground Ficus Petiolaris can grow to a tree. In pots, they rarely reach over 2m.

Fern Farm faviconPosition & Care

  • The potting mix should be kept moist but not soggy.
