A little green

Every time I've visited a new nursery in the last few years I've inquired about these trees. A ficus of sorts that has a big green leaf and grows happily indoors given enough light. I first saw them in LA in a furniture showroom and even though they were planted in pots they had grown up and into the vaulted ceiling. I've never found one at a nursery in South Africa but I see them growing on the sides of the road like weeds. So tempted to don my balaclava in the middle of the night to go dig one up.



  1. These days, I am more than willing to don a balaclava at all times!

  2. Ha ha! Re the balaclava!! And also NOW I know what the tree looks like that you have been"going on about" all these years!!
