Ficus natalensis (triangularis) variegata - Hearts in the Snow

Click to see full-size image

Can be used for bonsaiSmall tree 10-20 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Full scientific name: Ficus natalensis subspecies leprieuri, also known as Ficus triangularis variegata.
One of the coolest plants on the market! The Ficus Triangularis Variegata plant is one of the harder plants to find, even its non-variegated version is not common. This easy-care beauty shows off quantities of green and cream, triangle-heart-shape leaves that are held aloft on stiff compact stems. It's a super tough plant that can take a bit more abuse than other members of the ficus family. It is a slow grower eventually reaching 4 feet in height. The brighter the light, the better the variegation will be on new foliage.
This spectacular ficus can make an excellent houseplant. Decorate a table top with a single specimen or flank a doorway or entry with a pair of these easy-care ficus. They would also look terrific in a bright bedroom, bathroom, or kitchen.
This plant NEEDS light, if you do not give it enough light it may drop leaves or stop producing variegation. If grown indoors, use additional grow light for 10 hours a day. Water your plant whenever the soil feels dry to the touch. This handsome plant does not like wet feet so use your finger to make sure the soil is completely dry before offering moisture. Water thoroughly and then let the plant dry out again before it gets another drink.

Big tree > 20 ftFull sunModerate waterEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerantSeaside, salt tolerant plant

White Fig. Ficus virens found in India, southeast Asia, through Malaysia and into Northern Australia. It is locally known as Pilkhan or Manbornde. Like many figs, fruit are edible.

It makes a great bonsai as most of the fig trees.
One of the most famous specimens of this tree is the Curtain Fig Tree of the Atherton Tableland, near Cairns, a popular tourist attraction.
