Dattaji Salvi Udyan  Thane

Date: May 1, 2018 … Altitude: about 11 m (36 feet) asl

Ficus lyrata  Warb.


Ficus lyrata that I have seen has rounded leaves. Not pointed.
This could be something else. 


Thanks … you are correct about posted plant being not Ficus lyrata.

I too was not comfortable with F. lyrata for posted plant.

Will wait for someone to help me with the ID.


The gardener has suggested the ID of Ficus septica, and I am convinced with it.
