Often thought of as houseplants, the common name for the ficus genus of about 800 different species is fig. Ficus carica is the common fig and often grown outside in the UK in warm spots with hopes of a fruit crop.

F.benjamina is popular as and indoor plant as it can take poor growing conditions and has some interesting variation in its foliage. Another favourite is F.elastica or India rubber tree.

Some species of fig are stranglers that climb up a host and smother it and some put down deep roots – the longest recorded at 120m!
