    I am working on a bit of a project and am wondering where to get large pots of creeping fig, or large quantities of smaller potted ones?

    Do they need to be rooted, Jan? I can get you loads of unrooted cuttings if need be.

    Does not need to be rooted... just need a large amount of it.

    Let me know when you'll be around and I'll fill up a garbage bag for you. (For real.)

    Thanks, but that is not a creeping fig. That is a type of Hoya.

    It's Hoya carnosa, the most commonly found Hoya in the North American market. It's much larger than Ficus pumila, the leaves of creeping fig are generally only between nickel to quarter sized and they don't have that waxy cuticle that the Hoya leaves have.
    If you are near London send me a message. I am rooting a couple types of Ficus pumila at the moment.
