I have a ficus alii which I've had for two years. Recently I noticed what appears to be fruit on it. ?? I know that ficus trees are part of the fig tree family but I've never heard of an indoor plant fruiting.Is this possible? I never noticed any flower on it either. It appears to be fairly healthy and other than these green fruits (?) I don't notice anything unusual about it.

Hi Emcurt,
[wayey] Welcome to The Gardeners Forum.

Here are some info from internet search.

Ficus 1

Fius 2

We have Ficus carica. The fig is commonly called a fruit, it is really a cluster of outside-in fleshy flowers. Each flower can develop into a seed if pollinated.
