Ficus elastica (Rubber Tree)

Ficus elastica
Rubber Tree

This tropical evergreen tree has vast beautiful leaves with a glossy, rubbery texture-hence the name. The Rubber Tree benefits from lots of indirect sunlight and well-draining soil. Adding perlite, peat moss or coco-coir will help your tree to do its best. Although be aware that Ruber Trees are toxic to dogs and cats, please keep it out of reach.
