This one-of-a-kind tree stands apart from the rest. What you see in the photos are what you get, and there will never be another one like it!

I’m Nora, the Willow Leaf Fig, and native to India and Nepal, where I’m sometimes used as a folk remedy. I’m an important food item to the black crested gibbon. In the wild, I can grow up to 40 ft tall, but in your home I make a great indoor bonsai and I’ll stay fairly small. My trunk has a natural curve and will get thicker as I grow older. My leaves also has a striking resemblance to the Weeping Willow, hence my name.

This forest arrangement of the Willow Leaf Ficus makes for the perfect banyan style bonsai. Over time this tree will grow numerous aerial roots.

I can tolerate bright conditions to a fairly low light area. Being near a window will be the best spot in the home, especially if it gets bright indirect light. I enjoy being outside when the weather is above 50F, but I'll make a good indoor companion year-round nonetheless. Just remember to keep me away from heaters and air conditioners. Strong changes in temperature aren't my friend. To water, submerge my pot up to the rim for 20 minutes. Do this about once every 7 days, or when my pot starts to get light again. You can safely pinch back my leaves to keep me in shape twice a year.

Symbolism: It is legendary in East Asia because it is said that Buddha gained enlightenment under the ficus tree. They are also seen as the link between the human and spirit worlds.
