Ficus pumila is an evergreen climber, which is commonly known as the creeping fig. Ficus pumila is a vigorous and robust, self clinging climber, which can seemingly attach itself to even the smoothest of glass terrariums or vivariums with ease. Ficus pumila forms a tall vine, which is covered in rather pretty heart shaped leaves.
Ficus pumila can reach about 3m (10ft) in height – making this plant too unwieldy and unmanageable for most terrariums, although this climber can be pruned to maintain a desired height.
Ficus pumila originates from Asia. This plant will not survive freezing temperatures or frosts – be warned!
