The elephant ear fig tree is the fig tree with the largest leaves in the rainforests of Xishuangbanna. It usually occurs in windbreaks of the forest, in forest clearings, or at the edge of rain forests: simply the places where birds frequently roost and leave their droppings behind. The young leaves are starting intensely red, and turn more and more green when reaching their ultimate size of up to 2 ft in length. This is surely an impressive fig species and it makes a great indoor plant for large rooms or hotel lobbies. It can also easy be trimmed and the plant reacts with even more shoots and leaves on a thicker stem.The fruits are very much liked for the jelly-like substance contained in them. If this tree gets a proper supply of water, organic matter, etc. It grows very vigorously.
