Ficus cyathistipula is an evergreen tree, growing to 5 metres (16 ft) in height. It has dark and flaky bark. The trunk is thin and branches readily, and may form adventitious roots for support.
The dark, glabrous and leathery leaves are up to 7 cm wide and some 20 cm long. Their venation is limited to some 5 to 8 lateral nerves.[4] The leaves are ovoid to oblanceolate and blunt towards the tip, except near the leaf spine. They are arranged in a spiral, on petioles of up to 4 cm long.
The globose syconia (i.e. figs) grow solitary or up to three together in leaf axils, on peduncles of up to 2.5 cm long, or may be sessile. They measure up to 5 cm in diameter and are initially greenish yellow to whitish, and flecked pale yellow, but ripen to a reddish colour.
