Ficus altissima or 'Yellow Gem' is a relatively new addition to the New Zealand market as a rubber tree variegation. Its foliage is made up of thick rubbery leaves, with a base color of bright green that features an attractive yellow-green blotchy border and yellow veins. This lemon and lime beauty will develop deeper contrast and variegation with ideal light conditions over time. In a pot, this tropical plant can grow up to 1m high indoors! This delightful and aptly named ficus is a highly collectible plant that will be loved for years to come.
• Light: Bright, indirect light and morning sun
• Water: Water when the top few centimeters of soil dries out
• Considerations: Beautiful air purifier and super easy to take care of
