The “Ficus elastica Rubber Shivereana” is a specific cultivar of the Ficus elastica plant, commonly known as the Rubber Plant. Ficus elastica is known for its attractive, glossy, and broad leaves. The “Shivereana” variety is appreciated for its variegated foliage, which adds a decorative and unique touch to indoor spaces. Here are some key characteristics and care guidelines for the Ficus elastica Rubber Shivereana:
- Appearance: The Ficus elastica Rubber Shivereana features large, elliptical leaves with creamy white to pale greenish-yellow variegation, which stands out against the deep green background. The variegation adds a distinctive and decorative element to the plant.
- Light Requirements: Provide bright, indirect light for the Ficus elastica Rubber Shivereana. It can tolerate some filtered sunlight but should be protected from harsh, direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.
- Watering: Keep the soil evenly moist during the growing season (spring and summer), allowing the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. Reduce the frequency of watering during the dormant winter months. Avoid overwatering to prevent root rot.
- Temperature: Ficus elastica prefers temperatures between 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C). It can tolerate slightly cooler conditions but should be protected from drafts and extreme temperature fluctuations.
- Humidity: While this plant is adaptable to average indoor humidity levels, it benefits from higher humidity. You can maintain humidity by misting the leaves, using a humidity tray, or placing a humidifier nearby.
- Fertilization: Feed your Ficus elastica Rubber Shivereana with a balanced, liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the winter.
- Pruning: Prune your Rubber Plant as needed to shape it and remove any leggy or damaged growth. It can tolerate moderate pruning.
- Toxicity: Ficus elastica is considered toxic to pets and humans if ingested, so it’s essential to keep it out of reach of pets and children.
Ficus elastica Rubber Shivereana is a visually striking and relatively low-maintenance houseplant. Its variegated leaves make it an attractive addition to homes and offices, providing a touch of greenery and elegance to your space when cared for properly.
