THE PORT JACKSON FIG
GENUS FICUS RUBIGINOSA

Ficus rubiginosa, commonly known as the Port Jackson Fig or Rusty Fig comes from the Queensland and New South Wales. A variable fig in the wild it can come as a shrub or a large tree to some 50 metres, just depending on its habitat.

Port Jackson Fig is perhaps the most commonly bonsaied of all the Australian figs and is a highly prized bonsai subject.It has glossy, dark-green oval leaves to some 10 cm. These are shiny above and rusty red on the under-side, giving it its other common name of the rusty leafed fig.. The trunk is normally gnarled with some buttressing and air roots are common when grown in high humidity. The 1 cm fruits are popular with fruit bats and foraging birds.

As with most figs this species can take low light, indoor conditions and in the outdoors can be grown in full sun or part shade. With regular pruning and shaping this one can make an excellent dense hedge.

Remember that when grown in garden cultivation and given good conditions with plenty of warmth, moisture and food this is a fast-growing species that left to its own resources will be too large for the average garden. An interesting aside is that it is tolerant of salt spray, although this will normally lead to dwarfing and a reduced size.

As a bonsai subject this species is an excellent choice. It is fast-growing, the leaves reduce well with defoliation and the trunk can produce fascinating forms. And you can get air roots as well if this is your thing.

This species is not frost tolerant. It likes a rich loamy soil with good moisture. As indicated it can take full sun or pat shade and is tolerant of salt spray

BONSAI CULTIVATION NOTES (FIGS GENERALLY)

POSITION Though tolerant of poor light levels and dry air, try to find as bright a position as possible indoors on a sunny window-sill (Ficus will tolerate full sun), Ficus are best kept in position where temperatures do not fall below 15°C. Figs will not die from lower temperatures but continual exposure to temperatures below this level will cause a gradual deterioration in health. Do not position where the tree will be exposed to cold draughts as this can cause leaf-drop through stress. Encourage higher humidity levels with the use of a gravel tray and never place above radiators which dramatically dry the surrounding air. Temperature fluctuations should be kept to a minimum. During the summer when night temperatures remain above around 12°C, try to place Figs outside where there is increased light, better humidity and warm air circulation to increase health and vigour levels. Most figs grow best in temperatures between 15°C and 30°C. Temperatures above or below this will slow growth; continual exposure will eventually lead to ill-health.

FEEDING Feed only when showing active growth; do not feed during the winter if growth stops or if the plant is showing signs of ill-health. Feed with high-nitrogen or a balanced fertiliser fortnightly.

REPOTTING Repot in Spring every two years using basic soil mix.

PRUNING Hard prune in Spring ideally though most figs will tolerate this year round, trim new growth back to shape during the growing season. Figs bleed a milky, white sap (latex) when pruned and this can be used to seal wounds by dabbing with paper or a cloth. When pruning back smaller branches, leave a short stub which will dry out over the following days, removal of this dry stub is easy and leaves a far smaller scar in the bark.

PROPAGATION Figs are very easily propagated from cuttings at any time of the year and from air-layerings.

PESTS AND DISEASES Scale insects and mites can be a problem. It should be noted that Figs will not tolerate insecticides containing Malathion. Leaf loss is nearly always due to stress caused by overwatering or incorrect placement though if conditions are improved, Figs are able to leaf out within 3-6 weeks.

STYLING All forms except Literati in all sizes.

The fig is commercially propagated from seed as well as cuttings as well, however seed germination can be patchy and for that reason a generous quantity of seed is included in each lot.

Propagation notes accompany all seed lots.

This listing is for 100 fresh seeds.


Item shipped by ordinary mail upon receipt of clear funds.
