Could you please advise what this might be popped up amongst jurassic fern

Answer: Hi Hendrik,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

This is a variety of Ficus elastica that has popped up there. These can be weedy in some areas and are best not planted out in the open garden area.

They can make a lovely house plant though if kept contained and out of reach of children as the sap is poisonous.

Kind regards
