Ficus pumila

Family: Moraceae

Countries: China, Japan, South America, Vietnam

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!
