The leaves of this ficus will grow very large especially when grown outdoors. Slide across to see the photo compassions. You can grow Ficus dammaropsis in a container, although it will need to be pruned after a while as it will outgrow all but the largest pots. Start it off in a container surrounded by other plants that require a little shade. It will give a tropical look to any patio or courtyard and provide shade for smaller plants.
For best growing conditions keep in bright, indirect lighting.
Although Ficus dammaropsis is said to grow well in full sun, it may suffer a little leaf burn on very hot days. From our observation, afternoon shade to dappled shade is best. Like most ficus species, a humus rich soil that retains some moisture is best.
Ficus dammaropsis will cope with dry spells once established, however it will perform better with moisture through summer.
