Melany Rubber Plant

Ficus elastica 'Melany'

SKU
44590
A new generation of a classic easy-to-grow houseplant, with more compact growth. Dark, glossy green leaves have a dramatic hint of burgundy. New leaves emerge from the top of the plant in a spike-shape covered with a light-pink sheath for an extra splash of color. Can easily be kept to a small size to fit your space, or let grow into a tall statement plant to add a tropical accent to a room.
