Ficus repens 'Creeping fig'
Common names: Creeping Fig, Climbing Fig
The Creeping fig is a relative of the stately Fiddle leaf fig and Weeping fig trees; however, this ficus prefers to grow as a creeping, vining, trailing plant. It's leaves are small and cover the length of its trailing stems. Unlike its cousins, it prefers a little bit more frequent watering than the larger ficus trees. Aim to keep the soil evenly moist, and let the top inch or so dry out before watering. Your fig will look beautiful in a hanging basket or on top of a tall shelf, allowing it to creep and crawl in its whimsical way through your space.
Light: Bright Filtered
Water: Occasional - Frequent
Pet Friendly: No
Care: Creeping figs want to climb, so give them a way to crawl up the wall, a bookcase, trellis, or shelf! They will also thrive in a little extra humidity.
