The rubber plant, or Ficus elastica 'Burgundy', is a species of plant in the fig genus native to North Eastern India and surrounding regions. This plant was dubbed “the rubber plant” due to its sticky latex sap that was discovered to dry into a low quality rubber. The Ficus elastica enjoys moderate to bright indirect sunlight. Its deep purple and green leaves have a waxy coat that provides a beautiful glossy sheen. New growth often also exhibits shades of pink within the veins, making this a colorful, yet elegant statement plant. With proper lighting and watering habits the rubber plant will grow quickly, often doubling in size within a year.
The leaves on this plant are an amazing deep green and are so glossy and beautiful. She's in a 140mm pot (second photo is of the actual plant). Photo is only for reference and the plant should be a similar size and maturity as the plant in the photo.
