Question: Ficus macrophylla
Hi, I have been given a ficus macrophylla of about 2 meters with a trunk of 15cm section ... it is a wonderful plant that I can become colossal in size ... I don't have too much space for which I was wondering if 20 meters away from the house were enough ... thanks in advance for your reply ...
Answer: Ficus macrophylla
the plant they have given you can reach considerable dimensions over the years, and in fact usually in Italy it is found in botanical gardens or in urban gardens, since in addition to growing very high, it becomes very large also in width, and produces a decidedly important root system; so I would say, if possible, to position it as far as possible from the house and 20 meters seem to me very few, even if the plant develops over many decades.
