Ficus benghalensis & religiosa Seedling Update

Just a quick post today. The seedling have been growing slowly but steadily. They've still only been inside around 21C or so. I moved them to a West window where they receive nearly full sun, just filtered through a window screen. When I divide them I'll move about 1/2 or each species out into filtered sun. They should enjoy the heat as long as I don't forget to water.

  1. Wow, I have never heard of/seen anyone grow any species of Ficus from seed before. Did you buy the seeds?

  2. Yeah, I did. I purchased them on ebay from a seller in India. They provided a tonne of seeds for a really low price.

  3. What soil do you use?

    1. Bruno, just use something light and airy but that can hold water. Peat moss works well. I added cocoa fibre to a heavier mix to lighten it up.


Thanks for contributing!
