Ficus pumila Variegata 'Creeping Fig' is a clinging vine that can eventually cover wall, arbors, fences or any other structure that it comes in contact with. It's a native of China, Japan and Vietnam and prefers moist, humid conditions where it will thrive.
Avoid direct sunlight and provide a brightly lit setting. It will also tolerate low lighting conditions.
When you water the plant give it a thorough watering until water seeps through the bottom (during spring and summer) of the container and allow the soil to stay slightly moist. After giving the plant a thorough watering remove excess water from the tray under the container to prevent causing root rot. During the winter water much less without soaking the soil.
The F. pumila is very easy to grow and maintain (if anything it's hard to stop them growing), but it does need to be pruned to keep it at a size suitable for the place it resides indoors. The good news you can prune these as much as you like, which is best done in spring.
Toxic to cats and dogs.
