The plant is known as Krishna’s Butter Cup. It is believed that Lord Krishna was very fond of butter and would even steal it. Once when he was caught by his mother, Yashoda, he tried to hide the butter by rolling it up in a leaf of this tree. Since then, the leaves of these trees have retained this shape.

Very large, fast growing, evergreen tree up to 10ft, with spreading branches and many aerial roots. Leaves stalked, ovate-cordate, 3 nerved, when young downy on both sides; petiole with a broad smooth greasy gland at the apex, compressed, downy.

Must plant it in a large pot, use plenty of bio manure and look out for stem borer bugs.

Thanks for organizing so much of useful information on plants.

I heard about your site from a friend who mailed me a link to the Ficus krishnae page. I found the tree at Botanical Garden, Karnatak University Dharwad. I made a short video of the tree - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9AoEaktbiIQ
