Sometimes referred to as the Rubber Tree, the glossy dark burgundy leaves of this particular Ficus makes a great medium sized indoor plant. An excellent choice for our sub tropical climate here in Brisbane.

Place in a bright room near a window. Water weekly or when the top 2-3cm of soil in dry, and less frequently during winter.  Every so often, take your plant outside and hose the dust off the foliage.

Display this plant in a large basket, or black or white pot.

TIP: All varieties of rubber plant are best kept contained in pots, because of their prolific growth and invasive root systems. When planted in the ground they can reach over 20m in height and their spreading roots can cause untold damage to driveways, paving, swimming pools and even house foundations. Keep them potted for manageable growth.
