   This member of the Moraceae family was given this name by Carl Sigismund Knuth in 1817. It's from Mexico, and prefer well-drained soil with lots of water and sun. It will grow up to ten or even 30 meters tall with a four meter base, and can be reproduced both by cutting and seeds.

 If Ficus palmeri is a species it selves, or it is just a subspecies, it still have red veins. If it is a subspecies as Richard Stephen Felger suggested in 1970, the red veined are Ficus petiolaris subsp. palmeri.
