Ficus altissima 'Yellow Gem'
Ficus 'Yellow Gem' (S)
Ficus altissima or 'Yellow Gem' is a relatively new addition to the Australian market as a rubber tree variegation. It's foliage is made up of thick rubbery leaves, with a base colour of bright green that features an attractive yellow-green blotchy border and yellow veins. This lemon and lime beauty will develop deeper contrast and variegation with ideal light conditions over time. In a pot, this tropical plant can grow up to 1m high indoors! This delightful and aptly named ficus is a highly collectable plant that will be loved for years to come.
The 'Yellow Gem' is an easy low maintenance plant that will really flourish under bright indirect light, and maybe a little soft morning sun. The attractive variegation won't be as distinct in less than ideal light conditions, so we do recommend choosing an ideal location for best results. Grown in a well drained potting mix to, this Ficus is to be kept in moist soil throughout the summer and watered less frequently in winter.
Keep soil consistently moist but not wet, but can tolerate some drying in the soil for short periods.
