Location: Dahachowk, Switzerland Park, Kathmandu, Nepal
Date: 29 September 2018
Elevation: 5800 ft.
Habit : Wild
Looks like Epiphyte !
I have no idea since there was no indication at all. However, the plant was found attached to a big tree.
Any idea about the genus ?
Ficus ? Piper ?
It is a Ficus
More images on 23 June 2020! ID not yet !
2 very high res. images.
Is it some Ficus species?
Ficus laevis Blume. ??
I think petiole size looks small as per images at
I think it is different, … Leaf pattern does not look like a matching !.
Habit is matching.
To me, leaf patterns etc. also seem matching.
Let me visit the location and look for fruiting images !
Ficus does not have milky sap.
From google : The leaves and stems of ficus produce a milky sap containing compounds that will upset your cat’s stomach and irritate its skin. Since cats tend to chew on houseplants, do your best to keep Milo’s paws far, far away from your ficus plant.
The leaf is some what looks like Aganosma sps… Which produces milky latex
Some descriptions look different. Leaf size I have collected is 35 x 14 cm (Very Large) and it did not produce sap when I cut the branch. I have followed this for a couple of years but it never seen flowered.
Also I think there is no distribution of Aganosma dichotoma in Nepal.
