Mistletoe Fig with Woohoo Planter
This product is sold out
This is a compact little fig from South East Asia which has spoon shaped, leathery green leaves. In the wild they grow as an understory plant in the lowland and mountains, at elevations up to 3200m. As such they are quite tolerant of cold temperatures.
They usually grow as an epiphyte (on trees) but sometimes are also found on sandy shores and rocky mountain tops. They produce handsome little green fruits in pairs through summer and autumn.
All this means that these guys are one of the easiest to grow indoor plants getting around!
Water when the top few centimetres of soil in the pot has dried out, usually once every 1-2 weeks. These guys require good drainage so never allow them to stand in water.
They perform well in bright indirect light but will also thrive in full sun so once they get a bit big for inside they can make an excellent balcony plant. They are also quite salt tolerant making them great for coastal gardens or balconies.
Plants are approximately 60cm tall when delivered but may grow to 2m tall indoors and much larger outdoors. These awesome plants are also suitable for bonsai if you want to keep them miniature!

A bit about the ceramicist
This piece was made by master potter Mark Gambino. Mark was introduced to pottery in primary school at the age of 10. He loved the feel of clay and being able to create from the earth. After a short session at school he begged his parents to enrol him in a pottery school. Mark now has over 40 years experience and has made pottery for David Jones and Country Road.
In 2017 Mark opened his own studio where he teaches and thankfully continues to make pottery. He's still passionate about his craft, always trying to better his work. In recent years making his own glazes and experimenting with new colours and effects has become a bit of an obsession for Mark.
