        There's a thread on the other forum about it. Seems like it needs pretty warm temps to keep it growing.

          Decorative, very. Clown Fig needs to be an indoor plant during winter, not nearly as hardy as any Ficus Carica. And I doubt the fruit would be edible without the pollination it would get only in the tropics.

            Ah Grazie tis make sense... I know I hear difference in fig taste because of wasp. We do not have in Chicago so I maybe pass on clown but is beautiful plant. Even if I grow inside still no wasp to pollen it. Sad

                Oh so you're saying it'll do fine in zone 5 during summer but winter must come inside to go dormant correct?

                  i dont believe it goes dormant like ficus carica, as it is more of a tropical plant.
