General Information and Care: Ficus pumila var. minima is a great alternative to the traditional Ficus pumila. The leaf structure has a quilted appearance. The leaves of this species are ¼" to ½" of the size of Ficus pumila. This variety prefers typical terrarium conditions (warm and humid with medium to medium high light) and does very well as both a groundcover or as a background plant. As with all plants in the Ficus family that we offer, this plant does not tolerate any long periods of drought. Compared to Ficus pumila, Ficus pumila var. minima is slightly slower growing.
