About Ficus triangularis 'Variegata'

Did you know that all plants in the Ficus genus produce figs? In fact, the word Ficus quite literally means figs! Even cooler, all figs are pollinated by tiny wasps that use the fruits as a safe place to raise their young. 🐝 Ficus plants also contain latex which emerges as a milky sap when twigs are broken. This latex makes them toxic, so be sure to keep a close eye out if you have children or pets!

Lives up to its name, weeping fig! The leaves are always shedding even with a small gust of fan wind or even when you move it slightly.

Most dramatic plant I own. Drops leaves like it’s her job and then regrows them in spring. Will drop them whenever she’s mad, thirsty, or you look at her wrong.
