Ficus quercifolia (Oak Leaf Creeping Fig):

  1. Appearance:

    • Ficus quercifolia is a climbing or creeping fig with small, oak-like leaves. The leaves are deeply lobed, resembling the shape of oak tree leaves.
    • The plant has a trailing or creeping habit, making it suitable for hanging baskets or as a ground cover.
  2. Growth Habit:

    • This Ficus variety is known for its vigorous growth and can quickly cover surfaces or structures, creating a lush, green appearance.
  3. Indoor/Outdoor Use:

    • While it can be grown indoors, Ficus quercifolia is often used as an outdoor plant in warm climates. It's commonly used to cover walls, trellises, or other vertical structures.
  4. Light Requirements:

    • Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate some shade. When grown outdoors, it benefits from partial shade.
  5. Soil and Watering:

    • Requires well-draining soil. Water when the top inch of the soil feels dry, and allow excess water to drain to prevent overwatering.
  6. Hardiness:

    • Ficus quercifolia is generally hardy in USDA Zones 9-11. It is sensitive to frost and should be protected from cold temperatures.
  7. Maintenance:

    • Prune to control its growth and shape. It's a relatively low-maintenance plant once established.
