The Tree Story
Fig Tree (Passion Enhancer) – Ficus carica
The sensuous fruit of this tree is really an inverted flower, with her reproductive parts turned inward. In order to reproduce she needs to invite the fig wasp to penetrate her. When this happens and the wasp lays her eggs within the inverted flowers, she then dies. When her offspring hatch, they pick up the fig pollen onto themselves before they create a canal, and fly away to later enter another flower, transmitting the first flower’s potent pollen. These trees wrap their branches and trunks around themselves, the perfect picture of self-love.
