The Ficus Petiolaris is an addition to the Ficus family and is different than the rest. This plant is also known as rock fig, because it is often found growing in rocky areas where the roots stretch over rocks in search of rooting soil. With its green-gray leaf color and its red vein, the Petiolaris is very striking. Next to that the heart-shaped leaf of the plant is beautiful to look at. This Ficus variety originates from Sri Lanka. The Petiolaris makes itself a stalk (tuber), this is called caudex.
