BRIEF DESCRIPTION

Ficus Pumila or Wagh Nakhi, Creeping Fig is a flowering plant from the mulberry family. It is known as creeping fig because it grows like a vine too. It is popularly grown as a houseplant majorly in the temperate regions. It can sometimes become invasive if the growth is not contained.

BASIC CARE

Creeping Fig does not require much care once established. It can easily be grown in a hanging basket as well as a creeper near a wall.

LIGHTING

The plant can grow in bright, filtered sun or low-light conditions too. For best growth however the plant should be provided with abundant of indirect light. Direct light can scorch the leaves.

FLOWERING

The plant has small heart-shaped green leaves. You can let the plant grow in small hanging baskets or let it grow like a vine by providing it a structure like a wooden stand or a homemade trellis. Growing season starts in spring.

WATERING

Water the plant deeply till the bottom at least once a week. Check the topsoil before watering again. Do not ever let the plant sit in wet conditions. That'll lead it to drop leaves and develop root-rot and other fungal diseases.

SOIL

Use a rich, well-drained, loose soil. It is really important that the soil be well aerated. Mix organic content such as compost and manure to make it richer. A layer of mulch over the soil will help maintain the moisture content as the plant prefers a fairly moist soil.

SIZE

It can grow up to 4 to 5m and spread up to 1 to 2m. Prune it to maintain the size and vibrancy of the foliage.

FERTILIZERS

Use a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half once a month in spring and summer. Fertilizing is not required in the winter months. Always water it before fertilizing to prevent fertilizer burns. Also, do not over-fertilize; that could harm the plant.

PESTS

It is usually resistant to pests and diseases. Still if you notice bugs, treat it with organic insecticidal spray.

BENEFITS

It doesn't require training; it'll climb wooden or stone walls by itself. It's perfect for hiding unsightly walls. You can also use it as a houseplant.

You can plant it in hanging baskets near the window. You can grow it in the garden for ground cover.
