|gosh I didn't know they were so hard to get i have one which I got at either home depot or Lowes in nevada. And oh dear i thought I could cut off the tops and root them, guess not if it's that hard. I even wanted to sell mine but folks here aren't too interested in buying house plants. so thanks for the info, poobles.|

|Poobles, you can always try to root a branch (root 4-6 so that you will have a better chance at success). You never know. Just because I had trouble rooting them doesn't mean that you would. I only have my experiences to relate and who knows, I might have been doing something wrong. Air-layering will give you a better shot at success though.

|It surprised me to learn Fiddle Leaf Ficus was difficult to propagate, because they were very popular and commonplace as an indoor decoration in the 60's and 70's in Texas. Just goes to show you never know about these things. We used to hoe out lantana 'weed,' and now it's an important asset to the garden.|
