WHAT IS A RUBBER PLANT?
While they usually range between three and ten feet tall in the home, if cultivated in the wild, they can expand upwards of seventy-five feet!
Likewise, the indoor plants seldom bloom, but in the wild, they can produce beautiful foliage. These are a great choice for the novice plant owner, as they require very little light or regular upkeep.
Simply keep them out of extended periods of direct sunlight and water them whenever the soil becomes dry to the touch, and they should thrive.
