Only two species of Bornean figs are known to produce a flush of new pink or red leaves en mass on new growth, Ficus tarennifolia as above and the montane variety of Ficus sinuata. Other species may occasionally produce one or two pinkish leaves on individual twigs e.g. F. chartacea, F. lepicarpa, F. fistulosa.
