OUTDOOR PLANT - Ficus Pulmia Variegated in 20cm Pot with Totem
The Variegated Climbing Fig (Ficus pumila variegata) is native to East Asia where it crawls up the sides of fences, buildings, churches and houses in abundance. The creeping fig is an evergreen climbing species which, in Australia, you might have seen crawling up the walls around your neighbourhood.
If you have a bare fence or brick wall and are looking to jazz it up a little with a layer of green then this climbing fig could be the answer! Simply pot directly into the ground and watch it sprawl upwards and naturally 'sucker' onto the wall. Alternatively it can be used as a hanging plant in a hanging basket either indoors or outdoors.
This variety is variegated - meaning it's foliage is a perfect mix of green with a splash of cream.
Best grown outdoors in a well lit spot. Too much harsh summer sun can burn those precious small leaves. It can handle lower light conditions but in order to grow quickly will love a good few hours of warm sunshine per day. Indoors prefers a spot with indirect light.
Keep moist over the warmer months but not drenched. Reduce watering in the cooler months and allow the plant to dry out longer between watering. Can adapt to dry conditions once established.
WE RECOMMEND POTTING IN...
This stunning potted climbing fig will need a pot 5-10cm larger than the 20cm growers pot it is currently in. A concrete Atlas pot would make a lovely combination.
