ABOVE: Ficus maclellandii juvenile morph. This plant was cloned in the Netherlands by taking a cutting from the “juvenile leaved” mother plant and sold in the UK as a house plant. These juvenile morphs sold as house plants are often labelled as F. binnedijkii which also produces a similar juvenile morph.
Berg (2011) Leaf dimorphy in F. binnendijkii and F. maclellandii describes how to tell the two species apart by looking for hairs at the base of the stipules which are present in F. maclellandii but absent in F. binnedijkii. In addition juvenile leaved F. binnendijkii usually have a very distinct pair of basal veins which are absent in F. maclellandii.
