Ficus elastica ‘Sylvia’

Ficus elastica ‘Sylvia’

One of the easiest and most popular beginner houseplants around, the ficus are a very diverse group of houseplants.

Ficus ‘Sylvia’ is a particularly pretty specimen with a creamy-white border to the leaf and varying shades of green pigmentation - each of which looks like it has been watercolored onto the leaf itself - while the underside has tones of pink and deep red - a truly gorgeous plant!

Ficus ‘Sylvia’ is a decently fast grower when it comes to houseplants, although is a bit slower than the regular run-of-the-mill ficus.
