Ficus pumila, also known as the climbing or creeping fig, is a dwarf species of ficus. There are three main variations of Ficus pumila. The standard Green coloration, a variegated form, and the miniature Oak leaf form ‘Quercifolia’. All three variations will grow quickly along the substrate and climb walls and decorations when being used in an enclosure. Ficus pumila is very adaptable to different growing environments and conditions. An overall great plant to work with!
Ficus pumila can tolerate temperatures just above freezing but should be kept between 55-85 degrees. Low to moderate lighting.
