Ficus benghalensis Banyan Fig Note: seeds are very tiny
Banyan is a common home and office houseplant, but in the wild it's a massive tree of Indian jungles. The tree starts out life as an epiphyte, or “air pant” growing on another tree where a fig eating bird deposits a seed. As it grows, banyan produces roots that hang down from its branches. They in turn root right where they touch the ground creating a forest of their own.
In its native habitat Banyan trees can grow 100' tall and spread over an area of several acres. Large, forest green, leathery leaves are like those of the fig called “rubber tree” Ficus elastica, often found as a houseplant everywhere. Banyan leaves start out bronze colored brown and hairy before maturing to glossy green and loosing most of the fuzz.
The figs are scarlet red, about a half-inch in diameter, and not particularly tasty.
There is really no such thing as a “houseplant,” since all plants originate from somewhere outdoors, especially the tropics, hence the term “tropical plant.”
The banyan tree is one plant that can remain indoors all year long and grow very well as a houseplant. Repot every 2-3 years, but like the rubber plant, banyan is best kept a little on the pot-bound side. The shoot tips can be pinched back to promote branching. Keep in half shade or moderately bright light.
If growing outdoors, keep in the shade. The tree is somewhat drought tolerant once established, but does thrives in well-drained soil and moderate moisture. (Let dry out between waterings – then soak down thoroughly) If leaves yellow – under watering or overwatering has taken place.
Warning The foliage and milky sap of all figs can sometimes be an irritant to skin and eyes for especially sensitive people, but most people are NOT effected.
