The creeping fig is an evergreen climbing species which you might have seen crawling up the walls of large mansions or a quaint house in the country. Indoors they’re best grown in a hanging basket, or given something to attach to and climb.
There are a number of varieties of this fast growing species such as the miminma, variegata and others which have smaller variegated leaves than the all green pumila.
How it looks and displaying: The heart shaped leaves on the ficus pumila grow to approximatively 1 inch long and along a wiry wooden like stem. You can keep these very small in a normal sized plant pot, in a hanging basket, or a larger container where the stems and leaves can hang over the sides. If you would like to be more creative you can allow them to climb a moss stick or provide them with a home made structure they can climb.
Care level: 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.
