Ficus villosa is a slow growing species of Ficus native to Asia and the surrounding islands. It has reddish-green leaves that become deep green as they age. The leaves are covered in trichomes, making this plant a real stunner! It does well in bright, indirect light and moderate to high humidity. Moist soil and sphagnum moss are helpful for rooting this species. It is more difficult to root and propagate, so please contact us if you need any assistance!
All of our cuttings have adventitious, aerial roots. Our rooted specimens will have at least a few active roots and will be established plants. Our plants are grown in high humidity in terrariums and greenhouses, therefore may need acclimation to the average home humidity / environment. Please contact us for acclimation information if you are not planning to use this plant in a terrarium, greenhouse, or humid room.
