The currently accepted scientific name for this plant is actually Ficus sinuata but we think that the quercifolia describes this Ficus better! [That's because the Genus of Oak Trees is Quercus-- which makes quercifolia translated from Latin to literally mean, foliage resembling that of oaks!] Having the leaf shape of an Oak Tree is where the resemblances stop though because unlike many other Ficus species this plant is a creeping climber, forming long vines instead of ever developing a trunk. AKA String of Frogs
~Although drought tolerant, do not allow your Ficus to dry out too much. In general, Ficus should be kept slightly moist during the growing season. Water when the top 2" of soil are dry. They do not like wet feet, so if 30 minutes after watering you see water in the saucer, pour it away.
~ Ficus prefer medium to bright light & can even be acclimated to grow in full sun. Do not place in low light areas.
~Do Not place in drafty areas or under/near an air vent. Unless temperature & humidity are high, drafts or cold air may cause Ficus to drop their lower leaves.
