Original Bonsai Tree

Ficus microcarpa


A very abundant species of strangler figs that can be usually found growing on buildings or strangling other trees. This one that I spotted has grown into a huge tree. Not its fruiting time yet so only small unripe figs are found.


Growing at the empty land at the seaside.


It is truly amazing and a work of art that this naturally large-growing species can be cultivated into the tiny bonsai which this species is known for instead. Borneo have over 150 native fig species and I have documented 1/3 of it together with 1StopBorneo Wildlife expeditions.
