The Rubber Tree, scientifically known as Ficus elastica, is a popular houseplant that is known for its attractive, glossy leaves and its ability to purify indoor air. Native to Southeast Asia, this tropical plant has become a beloved addition to homes and offices around the world.

Rubber Trees can grow quite tall, reaching heights of up to 10 to 12 feet indoors. The leaves are large, thick, and leathery, with a shiny surface that gives them a striking appearance. They are typically dark green in color, but there are also variegated varieties available with patterns of cream, yellow, or pink.

When properly cared for, Rubber Trees can thrive in various light conditions, from bright indirect light to partial shade. However, they prefer bright, filtered light for optimal growth and leaf coloration. It's important to note that direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, so it's best to avoid exposing them to harsh, intense sunlight.

In terms of watering, Rubber Trees prefer to be kept evenly moist. They should be watered when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, but overwatering should be avoided, as it can lead to root rot. It's important to allow excess water to drain from the pot and ensure that the plant isn't sitting in standing water.

Rubber Trees thrive in average room temperatures, between 60 to 75°F (15 to 24°C). They are relatively low-maintenance and don't require frequent fertilization. However, a balanced houseplant fertilizer can be applied during the growing season to promote healthy growth.

With its attractive foliage and air-purifying qualities, the Rubber Tree is a versatile and popular choice for indoor plant enthusiasts. Its ability to adapt to various light conditions and relatively easy care make it an excellent option for both beginner and experienced plant owners.
