Ficus petiolaris...The Ficus petiolaris commonly known as the petiolate fig and rock fig is a fig that is endemic to Mexico the foliage is stunning and is very rarely offered. Very showy beautiful velvet leaves with purple veins. Forms a caudex (thick-stem) so you could bonsai it if you prefer or let her grow nice and big. In winter may drop some leaves. These are a good size and nice a full limited stock rarely avaiablebe 

 

Care: These like a drink but need good draining soil so they don't get waterlogged, so water once the top 2 inches of soil is dry. They will grow best in part sun to shade not full sun. I would fertilize weekly once a month. Overall these are a very easy and attractive houseplant.

 

Other information:

Size: Pot Diameter 13cm - Total height is approximately 35-40cm 

Toxicity: Toxic to pets and humans, so keep out of reach from little and furry legs! 

Difficulty: Medium to hard, depending on your environment 

Feeding: General, the majority of houseplants should be fed every 2nd watering during the growing season (Spring and Summer), for me, it's about which every 14 days. In autumn and winter, I feed less, as indoor plants will require fewer nutrients.
