My little fig plant has decided to bloom. It's never done that before. It
now has about 5 little clusters of flowers just like this, at various
stages.

lovely... look forward to the figs *grins*

II once read somewhere that you could force figs to ripen by injecting olive oil into them. I tried it and it worked, but the figs tasted rather... oily....

Can't imagine why

I dont think there will be any. It's just a houseplant.

Really pretty flowers. I'll stick to those. I don't like figs.

They're very small flower (note my finger for scale) but this is the first time I've seen flowers on this plant, so I was surprised.

Hopefully I can get a few more plants this year. I usually get a couple every year-- eventually I'll fill up all the space I have for them in the bedroom, but not yet. :)

Very cool!

I'm curious about little figlets, too, so keep us posted. :)

they are so perfect looking they look fake. It is so nice when nature is able to outdo falsified mimics.
