Rubber Plant Belize | Ficus elastica 'Belize'

I am a stylish variety of the Rubber Plant with broad cream and green leaves have tints of pink and burgundy when young.

Useful to know:

Origin

I come from India and Indonesia.

Height/Growth

In the wild I can grow to 100ft in height but don't worry, I won't get to more than 6ft in my indoor lifetime.

Light

I like bright indirect light and no direct sunlight.

Water

Water me once the top inch of soil has dried out and please don't leave me sitting in water.

Temperature

Room temperatures of 16-24°C are perfect.

Feeding

Feed me once a month between spring and autumn.

Grooming

My leaves are real dust trappers so I'll need a regular wipe and please mist me too.

Care

I may drop a few of my lower leaves when I first move into a new home so don't be alarmed!

Toxicity

I am toxic so please don't eat me.

Fact

I am famous for the white, milky sap that flows from my bark when cut - it is latex which can be used to make rubber goods, hence my common name. Click here to buy Rubber Plant Belize.
