Mistletoe Fig with Woohoo Planter
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 pot
The Woohoo is a beautiful fun and cheeky planter, handmade by master ceramicist, Mark Gambino. Woohoo is deep blue/green on top with a bare bum!
The Woohoo has no drainage hole so u can be sure that your furniture will stay safe.
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.

Caring for your Mistletoe Fig with Woohoo Planter
Our special eco packaging
No Plant Stress
Our plant packaging is designed by people know how to keep plants fresh and healthy in transit. Your plants will enjoy a comfortable trip directly from our greenhouse to your door in just a few of days. Your plant will not have to deal with the stress of being bare rooted for transport (how most plants are sent) and you won’t have to deal with the mess and fuss of potting up your new plant when you receive it.
The plastic pot will be wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in place, it will then be tied into a specially designed cardboard insert which will keep it stable and upright throughout its journey. The insert will be glued in place on top of your cardboard wrapped ceramic pot to hold it down and your plant up!
Your plant will come in its plastic pot which we make sure fits perfectly in whichever ceramic pot you choose. Our packaging has been designed to allow us to send your beautiful ceramic pot along with your plant, fully potted, yep in soil, together in the same box.
The thing that we’re most proud of is that our packaging is fully recyclable and re-useable so you don’t have to feel bad about generating more packaging waste. In fact you should feel awesome because ordering from us, online, will generate way less emissions than if you were to drive to the nursery to buy a plant. The only plastic you get will be the plastic pot that your plant comes in and these can be re-used or recycled.
