Neriifolia Ficus is commonly known as the Willow leaf fig or Willow Leaf Ficus. A native to China, the Himalayan regions of India, Nepal, Burma, and Bhutan, this adorable tree belongs to the Moraceae family. The tropical winter-dormant tree can grow up to 50 feet tall in its natural habitat but grows as much as 3 feet tall in a pot. It loves heat, direct light, and humidity and depicts slow growth. It can be trained into a bonsai easily because of its dense foliage, aerial roots, and small green leaves. Also, it is easy to prune this houseplant and give it the desired shape. The Ficus neriifolia needs protection during winters and is not frost-hardy. It hardly blooms as a bonsai but in nature, it bears green tear-drop flowers.
