(This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List.)
This fig is a native of the coastal areas of Northern Australia, Malaysia, South Asia and India. Its habitat is known to extend southwards to the Atherton Tablelands in North Queensland, so a warm climate is required
A medium sized tree growing to a height of 30 metres (105 ft) in high rainfall areas and 25 metres (80 ft) in drier habitats.
This fig is known to exist in two forms, the form depending on where the seed germinates. If it germinates in a tree canopy it takes the form of a strangler fig once its roots reach the ground. As such a single trunk does not develop. If the seed germinates in the soil, it develops a short trunk and large spreading branches and huge buttressed roots to support its massive weight.
This plant is often grown by Bonsai enthusiasts and a 40 year old Moreton Bay Fig has been chosen to represent the species.
Aboriginals use the fruit’s sweet flesh as a food despite the gritty seeds.
Offered is a packet of 50 seeds and Grownotes to assist you in their cultivation.
All my seed is posted in bubble wrap protection.
