The Ficus elastica, more commonly known as the Rubber plant, is a species belonging to the fig family (Moraceae). They are native to India and can grow up to 50ft+ in the wild. Don't worry, they're more likely to be 3~10ft indoors.

Rubber plants enjoy medium to bright, filtered sunlight unless variegated (then they need more light). Regular waterings and ample sunlight will result in a happy and fast-growing plant. Avoid drafts and cold rooms.

Medium: Height is around 14 inches and planter width is 6 inches

Sizes will vary.
