Stock Number: 40306
Availability: In Stock
Family: Moraceae
Cultural Code: HP TGH what's this?

Crinkly deep green leaves are elongated triangles from much- branched trunks; good indoor shrub/tree from Zimbabwe easily forming decorative strangler roots. Most interesting as a standard (soon swallowing up its initial training stake) for when "stooled" on top will send out endless shoots in all directions like a dandelion seed head, most effective with the small featured dark green foliage of pieslice glossy dark leaves. This has swallowed up several areas in our stockhouses as it will produce may aerial roots in a humid atmosphere and soon one observes it growing from the neighbors' pots and baskets--topiary growers love its growing vigor, flexible stems, and deep green tones.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
