Hi Lucy,
Ficus pumila is quite commonly found in nurseries.
it's very cute and innocent looking while it has juvenile foliage.
It then changes as it grows mature leaves after a few years planted out and becomes a very vigourous growing climber, attaching to anything it can hold onto with it's roots.
some people dont like it because of that, maybe they're fooled by the small plant and geta shock when they realize it needs a lot of space or constant management.
I haven't seen the one for Aiyu Jelly (Ficus pumila var. awkeotsang) in Aust. yet. not to say it's not available , but I'd be growing it if I'd have located it.
It should grow easily from the very small seed ;-)

Hi guys,
I'm not sure if this thread is still alive, but I just happened to come across it and I think I may have the fruit you guys are all looking for?
It's currently fruiting, so just let me know if you guys are interested in some as I'm always up for a plant swap :)
Kind regards, Becky
