The link to the pipal lemma was good fun. The ficus plant is a standard for office greens here, so it must be hardy. I have not seen it produce flowers or fruit here. Are the fruits edible?

In India,it is believed that ghosts live on Pipal trees :D There's a pipal tree just near to our bungalow..haven't seen any ghost so far,but I used to climb up that tree when I was a kid (a human ghost on tree) >:D

The pipal fruits are edible,but not so good in taste.They are considered to be very good for brain development.OK,I should try it some day..
