It's a Strangler fig, philippinensis aka nuda. You have probably seen it many times in the landscape.. Wink

Corection, it's not the Florida Strangler fig (aurea) that you see in the landscape, it's a Bejamina variety (nuda) and an epiphyte.

Hi Billy.

This is one of my Philippinensis.









Back budding and ramification is nice on this species.

Like Dorothy explains; is called a philippinensis var. nuda.

Here is a picture of mine during the first styling on 2012.

How is this species when it comes to backbudding and leaf reduction? I've contemplated buying one, but the benjamina look of the leaves has scared me away. Benjamina don't do too well up here in the North.

Hi Ryan.

Very tricky. some branches tend to die back. Do not rely on leaf reduction, like most species of ficus (and tropical trees) the technique should focus on branch ramification.
