Behold, the majestic Ficus 'Audrey' in its native habitat....

The suburban post office storm drain. Sighing!
Keep calm... and plant something.

Only in Florida... Imagine what it will look like in a year! Rolling on the floor laughing

An excellent example of how Ficus (Ficuses? Ficuii?) LOVE water.

The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The 2nd best time is now.

You've never dealt with Ficus - the drain grate is doomed. The Ficus will be fine. Rolling on the floor laughing

Yeah. I don't even want to think about what those roots are doing to the drainage pipes. I once saw a Burgundy Ficus elastica roots vs inground concrete pool once. It wasn't pretty. The pool was toast.
Keep calm... and plant something.
