Another widely distributed Ficus, which occurs from Syria through Egypt down to KwaZulu-Natal Province of South Africa and in Madagascar, this is a massive tree in habitat. These plants are propagated from material originally collected near Lake Natron, Tanzania (WY 1214). The leaves are palmate, have roughened surfaces, and are medium green with prominent veining. The trees form massive trunks in habitat, which is why they earn their epithet. These plants are seedlings in 5-inch pots.
