As a houseplant, Ficus is very popular. Able to adapt to and endure lower light conditions and generally poor treatment, The Rubber Tree is a winner indoors. Provide as much light as possible, keep away from cold and drafts in winter, keep soil lightly to moderately moist with good drainage. Most any soil will be fine and largely sandy soils mixed with some organics are ideal. Light fertilization is best.
"Strawberry & Cream RUBBER TREE" - Nice selection of this tropical, evergreen tree; large, shiny leaves attractively outlined in strawberry-pink; indoor or summer patio site, outdoors in mildest Inland areas.
