Ficus deltoidea ( Ficus diversifolia ) - Mistletoe Fig - Moraceae

                This is  a shrub  of upright cascading habit which can reach 15 feet ( 5 m ).

                However, it grows rather slow and is being cultivated for houseplant use

                as it has attractive spoon- shaped foliage and bears greenish-white fruits, turning to orange-red

                when mature.

                Can be grown in half shade to medium sun. Water requirements:  moderate but regular

                watering is important.
