Ficus pumila 'Quercifolia'

Native range: Selectively bred plant, not found in nature.

Known names: Oakleaf Fig, Miniature Oakleaf Fig, Oakleaf Creeping Fig, Frog Leaf Vine

Hardiness: Best kept above 50°F

Mature Size: ~6" long vines, can get longer as long as vines can touch soil.

Light: Bright, morning sun

Water: Keep soil moist, not soaking

Soil: Standard garden/potting soil that retains moisture.

Dormancy Period: N/A

Pet-Safe: No

Plant Size: Grown in 2" pot


Chubby trident-shaped leaves, very small compared to the species, almost looks like an extremely small Boston ivy. Adaptable to most household and terrarium setting but will require some direct light to grow fast[er]. 

These work great in terrariums AND as a garden plant in warmer climates. Vines will grow and stick to surfaces. If you want a more "lush" patch, make sure it can touch soil in order to root down. 

We are not saying to do this but we know someone who is growing them outside in zone 8b and it survived winter!
