Importance of Fig Plants

Fig plants have always had very high importance in human beings. This is because they are considered a symbol of fertility in the Italian and Spanish cultures. In China, the fig tree is revered as a symbol of longevity and good fortune. There is also a belief that by eating this fig plant one would be able to stay young forever!

Figs are also eaten as an energy food while some chew on its bark for an energy drink! It is also believed that the fig leaf protects against sickness and diseases.

The routine care of these well-known fig plants never comes under the ‘easy’ category. But you will definitely earn ‘plant-parent’ status with this choosy plant, by following all the care guidelines. Place the figs in front of a window that receives direct morning or afternoon light. You want a window that has a mostly unobstructed eastern, western, or southern exposure — no trees or close buildings should be shading the window.
