Ficus 'Creeping Oak Leaf'

(Listing for Plant Only, Shop Pots and Planters)

Easy | Lush | Lovely

This vining plant is a smaller and more slow-growing version of Ficus 'Creeping Fig', which is wonderful for home environments that don't call for the rapid growth of a creeping fig but for plant parents who still want that viney lushness.

Creeping Oak Leaf slowly spreads to cover all the ground it can and will climb any scaffolding placed nearby.

Lighting: Bright indirect light.

Water: Likes to be kept moist, but not soggy. Water should never pool in the bottom of the pot. Water once the top 2 inches or so of soil has dried out, and mist a few times a week.

Soil/Potting: Plant in a well draining soil in a container with a drainage hole and made of slightly porous material like ceramic or sealed concrete. Repot annually or when plant exhibits discoloration without the presence of any mis-watering habits.

Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recommended for steady growth and to promote richer coloration in the foliage.

Temperature: Room temp (55-85 degrees is ideal), protect from harsh fluctuations in temperature particularly in the winter

Toxicity: This plant is toxic to humans and pets.
