A tropical plant native to Southeast Asia, the Rubber tree is a vigorous grower that can reach heights of 100 feet in the wild, and can become a more manageable but still substantial size in your home! Rubber trees are lovely with their broad leaves and a variety of coloring within the family. The variegated rubber tree has gorgeous leaves with splashes of melting yellows, greens, and subtle pinks.

Care: Your Rubber tree can grow quite large as a houseplant! Once it gets to a height that you want, feel free to prune the top of the plant (best done in spring or summer). It will also appreciate any extra humidity, so mist your plant regularly or place it near a humidifier, sink, or shower.
