A rather interesting and very widespread tropical fig is often found beside creeks. This fig is cauliflorus, meaning it bears fruits on the trunks. In this species, the figs are somewhat hairy and ripen yellow. This species has an impressive list of medicinal properties (see article), particularly in Ayurvedic medicine.
The opposite leaf arrangement of this species is unsual, but some other figs such as the very aptly known Ficus opposita does a similar thing-a-ma-jig.
