Hi! This is my first posting time here but I’ve enjoying learning about palms and other tropical plants through this awesome site. I just acquired this new ficus but the owner wasn’t sure what the variety was, but I got a good deal on it, so I couldn’t pass it up. It’s not a lyrata or an Audrey (not fuzzy textured leaves). Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Laurajs2011, Welcome to the forum,

Can't say for certain, but, take a look at a couple of the following Ficus sp: To me,  Ficus benghalensis, & Ficus lutea would stick out as possibilities.  Both can get BIG in the ground.

I think you are spot on with the lutea! I’ve never seen one in person so I’m thrilled to have one!

      A duet I have been watching between these two trees for a number of years.  They are growing at the once Quail Gardens Botanic Garden and renamed San Diego Botanical Garden here in Encinitas.  No question who will win in the long run, but in the interim there is a duet that they will play.  Any relationships you have like this?

      Can anyone ID this palm?  It is growing very well near Pacifica, California. My daughter and son in law just bought a house nearby and would love to plant one. I’ve informed them that if this is a date palm (what species/cultivar?) that this is probably a very old tree. I would like to get a positive ID on this as I think it is a magnificent, absolutely gorgeous palm!  I wish we could grow date palms here as we love dates, and date palms are really beautiful, but our collection of palms is growing fast. Mahalo nui loa for your help!

      I'm currently doing an experiment with more "hardy" Ficus in Hilton Head, SC, an area listed as borderline 8b/9a but in reality strong 9a with patches of 9b microclimates likely (see my post on thriving Ficus specimens in the area here),  and with Ficus Aurea (Strangler Fig) being the closest one to "native," it has to be included. If anyone has cuttings or plants, let me know. Also, does anyone have word on the spread of this plant into the more northern parts of Florida? Currently the furthest north one is an escapee on a date palm trunk in Jacksonville area, and official "range" is into Volusia County–though there's no way they're not creeping up the St. Johns and would love field reports if they exist. 
      Thanks!

      Can anyone please identify this plant?  Is it a palm?  It’s located in north Texas.
