What the fig?

I found this tenacious plant in our garden. It started growing in the drain pipe and has stretched (from about 4 feet up) to lay down roots in the ground.. I think the smaller plant is a rubber plant but the root-layer is a strangler fig. They don’t give up… 🙂

    Given 50 years, the Stranglers would pull the city down and reduce it to rubble.

    Humus pocket in the drainpipe, with constant rewatering = happy plant.

    Strangler figs make good plants for guerilla gardening!
