I am wondering if there is much difference in growing a ficus from seed or from a cutting.
Ficus are very easy from cuttings and that is the usual way of propagating them. Lots of hits on the web to tell you how to do it. I don't know where you'd even obtain seed. From seed you'd be waiting a lot longer for your new plant. Plus if it is a specific cultivar, eg a variegated one, seed will not produce the same as its parent.
Thanks those where my concerns also. Now to find this plant to take cuttings.
I have been looking online to find seedlings but mostly found just seeds which is why I ask the question in the first place. Seems like a very versatile plant to play with.
Try posting on the Plant Exchange. I used to grow them when I lived farther south. I put a foot long cutting in regular soil. They grow like crazy. Be careful where you plant them if you are putting them in the ground. They have huge above ground roots.
