Mistletoe Fig (Ficus Deltoidea)
Mistletoe Fig (Ficus Deltoidea) produces green oval leathery foliage that originates from Southeast Asia. During the warmer months, Mistletoe Fig produces tiny fruits that ripens from yellow to red. You can easily tell apart a male and a female plant by the size of their leaves.
Despite the fact that Mistletoe Fig produces these gorgeous delicious fruits, it is often grown as a foliage plant indoors with the potential to grow up to two metres given the right conditions.

Bright Light. Position your Mistletoe Fig with lots of bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid afternoon direct sun - particular in winter. Ensure it is not near an air conditioning vent either. This will dry out the leaves very quickly.
Medium. Like many houseplants, your Mistletoe Fig only needs watering when the top layer of soil is dry. The best way to test this is to stick your finger in the soil. Keep in mind depending on the season you may need re-position or adjust your watering.
