Answer: Climbing fig attaches itself to vertical structures by growing little suction-cup type appendages. These little "peds" can remain on brick, stucco, concrete and wood for years after the vines of the plants have been removed. They eventually weather away, but until then can be rather unsightly. The vines, or the peds, can grow between wood and stucco (such as windowsills or eaves)and allow rainwater to enter. Use caution with your climbing fig and train it well away from windows or eaves so it won't cause damage.
