I was trying to grow sacred fig from long time but still not going good with my luck..
I have tried all the possible ways but it was not enough..
Sooner, I got lucky when I found this little Sacred fig which was already planted in a container and was placed on an open space. It was so beautiful and it’s gorgeous heart shaped leaves from small branches were ready to sprout.
I saw some of the branches were bending down and some leaves have been fallen down.
I can imagine it’s going to grow a fantastic height very soon and it is obviously thriving where it is standing today,
I am crazy to know and wondering what if it will become birds favorite plant.
