MS, April,2022/10 Ficus sp. for id.: 2 images.
Location : Lungkulh, Mizoram

Altitude : ca.350 m.
Date : 14-11-2018
Habit : Small tree
Habitat : Wild

Looks like Ficus racemosa L.

Yes, appears close to images at Ficus racemosa

This should be Ficus fistulosa Reinw. ex Blume

Probably Ficus auriculata (=Ficus oligodon)

I guess leaf venation and fruit does not match with both  suggested sp.

Leaves have dentate margins hard to find after zooming and there might be chances of Ficus variegata Blume.
Very similar to Ficus fistulosa Reinw. ex Blume

What are the keys?



FICUS HISPIDA? request for ID … :
is it FICUS HISPIDA? request for ID …

i think mature leaves do not  have serrate margin

it may be F. hispida, but i request to upload recent stage photo of the same plant leaves..

sample 1(Ficus hispida), I have taken the shot at my friends place ….. I collected a branch of the plant & planted in my garden which died and dried….. after 2 months I suddenly discovered that a new plant (sample
2)  is born 100% exactly at the same place where I planted the branch …. are they same ???

I think it is not F. hispida. F. hispida leaves are opposite

I have noticed that in the younger stage even F. hispida produces alternate leaves..

… please keep us posted on this plant after another 3 – 4 months.
Not confidence to say yes OR no to Ficus hispida … because the young plant in sample 2 – (MAY 2011 & SEP 2011) seems to be different from what are normally seen.

I am also not very confident to conclude this as F. hispida.

This is not Ficus hispida. Refer my Ficus hispida photographs

Ficus variegata
