The African Fig has dense, luscious, deep green foliage with large, leathery, tumbler-shaped leaves. It is a vigorous species of Ficus and can tolerate dry air and shady conditions better than others. It branches readily and its dark, flaky bark gives rise to its alternative common name of Birchbark Fig.
Ficus cyathistipula prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate partial shade. Direct sunlight may burn the leaves
Water when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil moist at all times, but do not over water as this will cause leaf drop.
Pot Size: 17cm x 80cm
