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.
