I've only had this Ficus a few weeks,and already I can see its "The Rolls Royce" of Ficus elastica's. The color is much deeper then the also nice Ficus elastica variegata. Its grown much larger since the 3" pot size it was in. Full sun is best,don't let go too dry.
Not that commonly sold. If you get a chance,add it to your collection.
