I’ve had this Dicranopygium for about three years now and only recently has it started to look nice. It is rather strange in its growth habit as it climbs. This one is growing up a branch, putting out leaves every 6″ or so off the main stem. It is from Ecuador.
This easy to grow ficus does great growing on wood or up a background. It has a dense growth habit and will climb as high as you let it. The leaves are elongated and can reach almost 2 inches when mature. It has been incorrectly labeled as Ficus Panama, even though it is found throughout SE Asia including Malaysia, Borneo, and Sumatra.
