Botanical name - Ficus elastica 'Shivereana'
Common name - Variegated Rubber plant
Plant info - Ficus elastica or Rubber plants, are like having a mini tree indoors! In their natural habitat they can grow to more than 30 metres tall, however, the varieties we grow in pots are a much more manageable size. Ficus Shivereana is a unique plant that has large, wide, shiny leaves that are a rainbow of colours, speckled with creams, pinks, green and orange. It is hard to find and incredibly beautiful!
Plant care - The needs of this Ficus are quite minimal. It prefers a moderate amount of indirect light and water when soil is dry. Your plant may require support from a bamboo pole or similar and you may also want to give it a trim in Spring or Summer to give the plant a fuller shape. Give the leaves a gentle wipe over with a damp cloth or leaf shine when needed.
Growing in a 130 mm pot and nicely sized, these variegated Ficus plants are easy care and gorgeous in colouring. No two are exactly alike.
