The Rubber Plant, Rubber Fig, or Ficus elastica is a species of fig tree originally from Southeast Asia. While in the wild it can grow to the size of a mighty tree, it makes an ideal houseplant- able to thrive in low light conditions. With broad waxy leaves and woody stems, this plant makes a great addition to any room. Paired with this chic, woven basket in black and tan, bringing this snake home will make your space feel automatically upgraded. Score!
