begin life as epiphytes, then form adventitious roots that reach the ground and grow into powerful columnar supports for a huge crown (banyan tree). The aerial roots of some epiphytic ficuses are capable of tightly braiding the trunk of the host tree, causing it to die off (the so-called suffocating ficuses).
Leaves are alternate, less often opposite, whole, toothed or lobed. The stipules are very large; they dress the bud, but in most cases they soon fall off and only occasionally persist after the leaves open. "Fig leaf" is a stable speech form in many languages, including Russian; an uncountable number of times he was depicted on paintings and engravings by old masters.
All parts of the plant contain milky sap. Some species of milky juice (Ficus heterophylla, Ficus sycomorus, Ficus indica) are used in medicine.
Flowers are collected in axillary inflorescences, single or grouped in several, and sometimes on a leafless shoot forming a final spike or brush
