Ficus citrifolia, Shortleaf Fig, Florida Banyan, Giant Bearded Fig, Wild Banyantree, Wimba Tree

Click to see full-size image Ficus citrifolia
Family: Moraceae
Shortleaf Fig, Florida Banyan, Giant Bearded Fig, Wild Banyantree, Wimba Tree
Origin: Central America
Can be used for bonsaiBig tree > 20 ftFull sunRegular waterModerate waterEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerant

Ficus citrifolia can grow up to 18 metres tall. The bole can be 75cm in diameter The plant often begins life as an epiphyte, growing in the branch of another tree; as it grows older it sends down aerial roots which, when they reach the ground quickly form roots and become much thicker and more vigorous. They supply nutrients to the fig, allowing it to grow faster than the host tree.

The roundish fruit is greenish, often brown dotted, turning reddish and brownish at maturity, about 10mm in diameter. Fleshy, but with very little flavour.

Ficus microcarpa, Ficus nitida, Ficus retusa, Chinese banyan, Indian Laurel

Click to see full-size image Ficus microcarpa, Ficus nitida, Ficus retusa
Family: Moraceae
Chinese banyan, Indian Laurel
Origin: Many Tropical regions Of the World
Can be used for bonsaiBig tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

The pollinator wasp has been introduced to a number of places where the tree is cultivated, including Hawai'i, allowing this species to spread beyond initial plantings. Tiny seeds within small sized fruit are ingested by many fruit eating animals, such as birds. Seeds are capable of germinating and growing almost anywhere they land, even in cracks in concrete or in the crotch of other trees. The small seedling begins to grow on its host, sending down aerial roots, and eventually strangling and replacing the host tree or structure. F. microcarpa grows to about 60 feet in the wild, but it is easily trained as a bonsai. The bark is a smooth gray with a lot of aerial roots if you make sure it gets a lot of humidity. If you are growing them somewhere that has a lot of humidity never let the aerial roots grow out of the pot and into the ground. If this happens it will cause the bonsai to put out a rapid growth of branches and become a bush. Foliage is dark green and quite dense and grows upright. Retusa grow best in full sun with plenty of water. Fertilize with an organic or all purpose fertilizer every week. To prevent die back, prune only when the tree is actively growing. With terminal pruning the reuse will bud back easily. The milky white latex that is secreted when pruning branches may cause an allergic reaction to some people, so it is best to avoid contact with the skin.

Ficus microcarpa var. Green Island has small round leaves. In can be grown as a mounding shrub up to 6-8 ft tall or ground cover: it spreads out sideways and is easy to train as a ground cover clinging to rocks or even trailing down a wall. This is a great plant for the "Black Thumb" person because once established it requires very little maintenance. It is an extremely slow growing plant, so it doesn't require constant trimming like many other ficus plants. It is great plant for indoor. It can take low light levels. It doesn't have a high water requirement so not to worry if you forget to water it once in a while. It grows very slow, so it doesn't need constant trimming. All of these makes it an extremely desirable plant for use as a tropical Bonsai.

Ficus lyrata, Fiddle-Leaf Ficus

Click to see full-size image Ficus lyrata
Family: Moraceae
Fiddle-Leaf Ficus
Origin: Tropical Africa
Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterOrnamental foliageSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Large forty feet tree with fiddle-shape leaves that are thick, leathery with yellow-green veins. The fruit are figs that are dotted white. Popular indoors when young and used as a shade tree in the tropics. It is valued for its smaller stature, making it useful when other banyans are too large. It is also grown indoors in cooler climates. The fruit (syconium or fig) and reproduction systems of species in the genus Ficus are unique. Each species of Ficus has an associated species of agaonid wasp. Ficus species can only be pollinated by their associated agaonid wasps and in turn, the wasps can only lay eggs within their associated Ficus fruit.
