Common Name:
'TooLittle'
   
Ornamental Features:
A unique Ficus with small curled leaves, tight internode spacing, and dense appearance.
   
Habit and Growth Rate:
Upright tree- very slow growing which lends itself to minimal trimming. As an interior plant, Toolittle holds up much better than it's parent (F. benjamina) with the proper acclimatization.
   
Landscape Value:
Excellent for the bonsai market or small specimen pots. The large but sparse root system can be exposed from under the soil to add to the dwarfed natural effect the plant has and create that "aged" bonsai look.
   
Hardiness:
Zone 10
   
Culture:
Will grow in full sun or partial shade. Will tolerate temps down to freezing but would prefer to be kept between 45 and 90 degrees. Any well draining soil mix will do. Water thoroughly and allow the soil to dry down somewhat before the next watering.
   
Pot Size & Finish Time:
Cell pack to 4": 6 to 8 month cell pack to 6": 1 year
   
Propagation Methods:
Tissue culture, Cuttings, Air layer
   
Pest/Disease Problems:
Scales and mealybugs are infrequent pests of this plant.
