A rare beautiful ficus with green leaves and red/pink veins. The new growth is red. This ficus is great for bonsai because it forms a nice caudex. Perfect for containers, but can also be grown in the ground and it will become a small tree. It does well in full to partial sun. Tropical plant and winter dormant. It does bare figs when mature. Beautiful unusual ficus that is a rare find!
