"Miniature Oakleaf Fig" Tiny deep green leaves are deeply lobed. Not only is the individual leaf considerably smaller than the species form but each dimpled leaf is deeply lobed as if a tiny oak shaped cookie cutter was at work overtime. More clumping than running in habit, this is the "to die for" choice for the sophisticated terrarium or the stunningly wee topiary only inches high. The crown jewel of the "Creeping Fig" cultivars. This is not the much larger Ficus quercifolia--which see below.
|Cultural Code||HP CGH TER|
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.×
