Ficus microcarpa 'Mini Flat Leaf'
Regular price $30.00
Ficus microcarpa 'Mini Flat Leaf' is an exceptionally dwarf and compact version of the species, naturally growing into a 'bonsai' form and requiring very little pruning. It naturally remains under 1 ft tall and branches tend to grow horizontally and downward, cascading over the side of a pot or various other appropriate planting alternatives such as stumps or large rocks that have some soil pockets where roots can establish. Eventually, the central trunk thickens enough to give it a somewhat 'caudiciform' look. The leaves of the plant are oval-shaped, glossy, and dark green. It prefers bright, indirect light and well-draining soil that is kept consistently moist but not waterlogged. Overall, this fig is a beautiful, low-maintenance plant that makes a great addition to any indoor or outdoor garden. Its small size and unique foliage make it a popular choice for bonsai enthusiasts and plant collectors alike. (Pot size: 1 gallon)
