Ficus elastica

This dark horse that goes against the grain of your typical green-leafed houseplant. It's of the ficus family and produces a white sap that was used to make latex rubber back in the day. If you're looking for a stunning, low-maintenance, and rubber-producing plant, boy do we have a plant for you.

Medium to bright, indirect light.

SM: ~12" tall and a 4" pot.
MD: ~15" tall and a 6" pot.
LG: ~2'-3' and a 10" pot.

Pro-tip: Wipe down its leaves to remove dust build-up, which prevents it from soaking in as much sunlight as possible.

  • No direct sun
  • Toxic to pets

Leo is beautiful

The mailman delivered him upside down. Thankfully you prepared him well for travel. Leo lost a little soil, but otherwise, he is okay and is getting adjusted to his forever home.

Leo

I'm happy with this burgundy rubber tree. However, the leaves were covered in powdery mildew. I blame FedEx, not Rooted, as it took 8 full days for them to deliver this plant. Fortunately, I was able to use some Bonide horticultural spray to kill the mildew, though the spots remain {pls. see photo}. But again, I'm happy with the plant, and with Rooted.
