A fig "fruit" is a type of known as a , derived from an arrangement of many small flowers on an inverted, nearly closed receptacle. Folded in towards the midrib and droop down towards the ground. Depending on the species, each fruit can contain hundreds or even thousand of seeds.Next
This find predates the first known cultivation of in the Middle East by many hundreds of years.
The Creeping Fig works well for both indoor and outdoor landscaping in tropical, subtropical or temperate regions. These serve as decorative plants, food plants, and even religious symbols.
The flowers of this species can be a variety of colors ranging from pink to orange or even red in some rare cases.
A healthy ficus tree will not see these problems, but a stressed ficus tree likely losing leaves will surely develop a pest problem quickly. Fiddle-leaf Fig Fiddle-leaf fig has its name due to the distinctive leaves that resemble a violin with upturned tips. Several variegated cultivars are available.Next
All figs present a white to yellowish , some in copious quantities; the twig shows paired —or circular scars if the stipules have fallen off; the lateral veins at the base of the leaf are steep, forming a tighter angle with the midrib than the other lateral veins, a feature referred to as "triveined".
This variety of ficus plants is also known as Fiddle-Leaf Plant, Weeping Fig and the Varnish Tree. The existence of cryptic species suggests that neither the number of symbionts nor are necessarily fixed ecologically. Nearly half of fig species are gynodioecious, and therefore have some plants with inflorescences syconium with long styled pistillate flowers, and other plants with staminate flowers mixed with short styled pistillate flowers.
Morphological and reproductive behavior evidence, such as the correspondence between fig and wasp larvae maturation rates, have been cited as support for this hypothesis for many years.
Not all these cryptic species are sister taxa and thus must have experienced a host fig shift at some point. It can grow up to 50 feet tall.Next
The white contains a new leaf and a new stipule.
This plant is indigenous to Southern Asia but it has been brought over to North America as well. Series I, Seed plants.Next
