A Rubber Tree usually has 5”-12” large, thick, glossy leaves. Once damaged, the leaves cannot be trimmed and should be cut off. These plants can be used as a small plant for the table, a full lush bush on the floor, or a ten- foot specimen tree in a room with tall ceilings. Like a Ficus benjamin, a Rubber Tree doesn’t like to be moved and prefers constant temperatures. There are several varieties you can purchase: Burgundy Rubber Trees have reddish leaves, the Tricolor has grayish- green leaves with splashes of pink and cream, and the Doescheri has green leaves with splashes of pale yellow or creamy white.
