Re: Ficus lyrata


I think that's right about the roots, Zem, although I've got a Mexican rock ficus that may be the exception. I've always had it in a pot, but supposedly it grows in the nooks and crannies of granite outcroppings in its native habitat.

In that case get another one. From your description I'm gathering that all
ficuses have invasive root systems. I remember being told not to plant a
bearded ficus near a swimming pool for that reason. BTW, the bearded ficus
seedling I brought with me has to stay inside now that it's 10 feet tall and in a 26"
pot. I can no longer move it up and down steps. Sadly, because of that fact
it no longer has a beard. :-( I'm waiting for the day its pot splits.
