Tree Love – Rubber Tree
Since my childhood, I had been fascinated by the rubber tree, firstly because my mom use to call it a rubber plant and I was amused why such a big tree is called a plant and secondly because its leaves were very beautiful, sturdy, big and the tree looked beautiful. another good thing about this rubber tree is that it was available as a big tree in parks or roadside and also people use to have it in their living room too as a decorative plant.
In the first place, it’s known by many names – Ficus elastica, the rubber fig, rubber bush, rubber tree, rubber plant, Indian rubber bush, Indian rubber tree, etc. The rubber plant is an indoor plant with a bold statement. It’s a tough yet easy-going plant.
Uniquely, the rubber plant comes with so many benefits no wonder is an evergreen plant. It is also known to purify the air so a great addition to your living room decor. I have even read that the rubber plant is one of the best houseplants to clean the air.
Moreover, the Rubber plant is easy to take care of and makes your home feel special and evergreen. Also, a very good thing is – Rubber Plants are determined to grow upwards, no matter what. Such a positive attitude from a plant.
To sum up, this rubber plant I had spotted in Nilgiris and I was so close by that I was not able to capture the complete tree. Instead, I was amused with so many branches it had. I kept on looking at it for a long. How beautifully it has grown and the brown solid web of stems.
