    Ficus religiosa
    Sacred Fig

    Known as a sacred fig tree due to the inexplicably continuously moving leaves even when there is no air movement. The plant is a type of banyon tree grown mainly as an ornamental tropical as well as a bonsai work of art. Notable features are the intertwining root systems that grow partially above ground, beautiful bright green leave and the figs that ripen to purple colors. Makes a perfect potted tropical!

    Ficus seeds require close attention during the germination period.

    Fun Facts:
    1. Native to India
    2. It is believed in some religions that the movement of the leaves is from "devas" or "gods" that reside on these leaves

    There is really no such thing as a “houseplant,” since all plants originate from somewhere outdoors, especially the tropics, hence the term “tropical plant.”

    This fig tree is one plant that can remain indoors all year long and grow very well as a houseplant. Repot every 2-3 years, but like the rubber plant, keep a little on the pot-bound side. The shoot tips can be pinched back to promote branching. Keep in half shade or moderately bright light.

    If growing outdoors, keep in the shade. The tree is somewhat drought tolerant once established, but does thrives in well-drained soil and moderate moisture. (Let dry out between waterings – then soak down thoroughly) If leaves yellow – under watering or overwatering has taken place.
