Ficus salicifolia has long narrow leaves and tends to be an easy grower. They stay short and compact, making for a great bonsai! Originally from Africa, they are found growing on rocky cliffs so are generally fairly drought tolerant.
Ficus, commonly referred to as a "Fig" or "Rubber tree", is a large genus of plants that number over 800 different species. They are found on almost every continent and range from tropical to semi-temperate climate zones.
Ficus generally grow as shrubs and trees but some also grow as vines and epiphytes.
The more traditional Ficus that are commonly cultivated as house plants are the Elastica species, like Tineke and Ruby.
Most Ficus prefer to dry out between watering. They prefer bright indirect light and some species thrive in direct sun.
