    Ficus semicordata


    Drooping fig is a small to medium sized tree  used as a fodder tree in Nepal. Forest green foliage grows to an umbrella like crown. The tree produces an edible fruit with a sweet and sour taste.  Makes a good shade tree in frost free areas and a beautiful potted tropical.
    When trimmed the plant will fill out with thicker stems and more leaves.  

    Ficus seeds require close attention during the germination period.
     
     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. Re-pot 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.
     
    Note:

    This may be a challenging seed to grow for you and will require patience for germination – (1-9 months) in addition to proper care for success. Needs humidity, protection from wind, proper soil, correct watering program. Under excellent conditions the plant will reward you with a multitude of exotic blooms and will be well worth the work.
    Don’t try them if you cannot provide these conditions. Do some research, if needed, prior to purchase.
