QTY:

Yes, the Rubber Plant (Ficus elastica) is the same plant the tires on cars could have come from! The Rubber Plant, which is in fact a kind of fig, produces a white, milky latex in all parts of the plant which is extracted and processed into rubber, and is one of many plants natural rubber is made from. However, you don’t need to own a rubber factory to enjoy a rubber plant: the Rubber Plant’s dark green, folded leaves will be sure to make a wonderful decoration in any sort of house or apartment.

  • Commercial use of rubber plants to make rubber is a sure conversation starter
  • Leaves have a beautiful shade of dark green
  • Waxy texture on leaves gives it a natural gloss

*Comes in a standard plastic nursery pot
