Its all in the details for this humble fig! A gorgeous shrub-like plant, F. Deltoidea is named for its triangular shaped leaves. The thick, matte green leaves are dotted with tiny pinholes that help the plant to secrete excess fluids, the undersides of the leaves are a yellow hue and feature tiny triangles that are almost black in colour at each dividing leaf vein. Its nickname "Mistletoe Fig" is attributed to its small orange - red berries that are inedible but do look very pretty!
