Ficus Elastica Ruby AKA Rubber Tree 🌳
Rubber Trees typically grow in regions of Nepal, Northeastern India, China, and Malaysia. Contrary to what the name suggests, Rubber Trees are 100% real, live plants. They are given their name because natural rubber can be made from their sap! Rubber Trees can tolerate temperatures ranging from 60°-95° and humidity ranging from 20%-100%.

They enjoy bright, indirect light if grown indoors. Outdoors, they can take 6 hours of sun.
Ficus like to dry out fully in between waterings. When watering your Ficus make sure to fully saturate the substrate.
