Dwarf South African Fig
Dwarf South African Fig (Ficus Burtt davyi "nana")
South African Fig, Scrambler Fig, and Veldt Fig
This is a tiny leafed variety of ficus that makes great bonsai. They have an abundance of branches for styling and produce small green figs that turn dark red. Aerial roots form quite easily on this species. It grows slowly. Treat them like any other Ficus. Do not let the soil stay constantly wet.
