Strangler Fig

Ficus thonningii
 

 

 

 

 

1/ Seeds can be obtained by drying the figs and separating the seeds. Another method is to soak the fig in cold water for one day, turning it inside out and planting it in soil or vermiculite. Like all wild figs, it can also be propagated from cuttings (+/- 1 x 15cm). It grows very easily from truncheons (+/- 10cm x 2-3 metre large branches) and makes an attractive, fast-growing shade tree. An ideal species to grow in camps and lodges where shade is required. Sensitive to cold, but ideally adapted to climatic conditions in the Okavango Delta.
