Care
The Ficus Carica prefers a sunny, sheltered location as warm as possible. The tree can be planted in the ground or kept in a pot. Always ensure good drainage, by placing the plant in a pot with holes at the bottom. When this tree does not receive enought water, the leaves will curl up and become limp. So give more water when the leaves are drooping. Water regularly in the spring and summer, it is important to feel the soil first. Is it still damp? Then no watering. However, also prevent the soil from drying out. During hot summers, the fig tree can be watered every day. A rain shower is not enough to provide the earth with enough water.

Upon delivery, the plants have a height of 25 to 40cm (measured pot included). The plants are delivered in pots with a diameter of 9cm.
