Hi,

At first glance I thought this would be the regular rubber plant, Ficus elastica.

Upon closer look, I am not sure. Please help to ID the plant.

Thank you!
Stephanie

Are those red blooms in there? A better pic of the leaves and the blooms would help. Clusia?

Hi growin,

Those are just red ribbons. There were no fruit nor flower.

Here is another picture from another angle. Sorry no close up.

The leaves are opposite, so it can't be Ficus elastica (that has alternate leaves). Sorry, no idea what it is, though.

That's it! Garcinia subelliptica of the family Clusiaceae :-D

Thanks all!
