Ficus Elastica

A Ficus Elastica, also known as rubber fig, rubber tree or rubber plant, is a species of plant in the fig genus, native to eastern parts of South Asia and southeast Asia. The trunk grows aerial and buttressing roots to anchor it in the soil and help support the heavy branches. The leaves develop inside a sheath at the apical meristem, which grows larger as the new leaf develops. When it is mature, it unfurls and the sheath drops off the plant.
