About Ficus elastica

The Ficus Elastica, or the Indian Rubber Tree, is a sapling that can grow anywhere between 7 to 10 feet tall and 3 to 5 feet wide. Its lime-streaked leaves are a sight to behold, adding a pop of color to any indoor space. Unfortunately, it doesn't produce any flowers or fruits, but its stunning foliage more than makes up for it.

Did you know that the Ficus Elastica is also known as the 'Rubber Plant'? This is because it was originally used to produce rubber. However, it's now mostly grown for ornamental purposes.
