Fig Tree
Q.

creeping fig roots.

Zone V2R0S4 | jalba1210 added on July 11, 2017 | Answered

i just planted a creeping fig on the opposite side of a wall that has all of my pool equipment. I just remembered that underneath where i planted the creeping fig are the pipes that go from the pool equipment to the pool. I am concerned that the roots will attach and eventually break the pipes which are about 10" below the plant. Is this a real concern? How big do creeping fig roots get? should I pull it out now? If i made a poor decision what sort of plant do you recommend that can cover a wall and will not destroy my pipes?
