"Variegated Creeping Fig" White mottling best in cool conditions. This "sprinkled" form never reverts as do 'Snowflake' and 'Curly'; amazingly dramatic in its winter growth (in cool, not frosted spots) which emegers nearly white with lime green speckling and then gradually matures to a rich deep green tiny oval leaf sprinkled with white. Some customers in the tip of Florida and the hot spots of Texas inform us that the foliage emerges entirely green during the fryng hot months, but with cooler nights in the fall, start emerging white again. Quite wonderful.
|Cultural Code||HP CGH|
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.×
