3" cascade fig.

Post  Guest on Tue Sep 07, 2010 3:56 am

Hi IBC friends.

great small trees are shared lately. i would like to share one of mine.



top view...leaf size reduction.



my hand for scale. ht of tree-3 inches



in my display niche.


background on the tree.- the tree is locally called "is-is" or "ople"- "is-is" in English means to rub on a surface, the leaves of this tree is so rough and tough it is used in some far flung areas here as an alternative to sand paper, yup..thats how tough and rough these leaves are,
i used it too, when i was a kid to "sand paper"/smooth up the surface of my desk in my grade school days.



regards,
jun

Lovely, delicate tree Jun. Leaves sound a bit nasty. Not the sort to cover your private parts affraid

Todd,
thanks,

the leaves are odorless...unless, like Will said... used it to cover private parts.

No No No

jun



Will,
thanks.

i guess so Will, after reading the story of Adam and Eve...in the end they said "keep away from 'is-is' leaves folks! its not good for your fashion garment". (just made this up)., unless you want some instant size reduction.

Very Happy

That area's small enough as it is. Rolling Eyes Sad Could cover up with a Chinese Elm leaf!

Nice tree Jun. That fig is native to Indonesia. We called it ficus ampelas.
