There are Several Ways To Reproduce Ficus Shivereana:
One of the most interesting things about Ficus Shivereana is that there are several ways to reproduce it. You can grow it from seed, take cuttings from an existing plant, or even grow it from a root ball.
- If you want to grow Ficus Shivereana from seed, you’ll need to start with fresh seeds. You can either harvest them yourself or purchase them from a nursery.

- If you want to transplant an existing Ficus Shivereana, start by preparing the new pot. Fill it with fresh, well-draining soil and place it in a warm location.

Your plant should adjust to its new home within a few weeks.
