The Rubber tree has large, glossy burgundy leaves that emit a latex sap (that is poisonous to pets) when they are damaged. This houseplant makes a bold statement piece. It is known for its adaptability to low-light situations, but would prefer a medium to bright light. Particularly effective at removing formaldehyde from the air.
Note: Sizes are indicative of pot size, not plant size. For example: 4" pot means that the plant will come in a 4 "tall by 4" wide plastic nursery pot.
