They all can produce areal roots and strangle whatever they wrap around..  " Strangler "  Fig is just an over - used, common reference for these species of Ficus..  Using the scientific name narrows things down a whole lot better. Native sp. would be F. aurea, and F. citrifolia.  F. benjamina  would be the non native species..  Much smaller leaves than either of the natives, ..even on mature trees.. F. benjamina: F. citri
