Plant Features

The Chroma Belize Rubber Plant, also known as Ficus elastica Belize, is a striking and versatile houseplant known for its vibrant variegation and easy-care nature. Its large, oval-shaped leaves feature a captivating blend of green, pink, and cream shades, making it a standout addition to any indoor space. This tropical beauty thrives in warm, humid environments and can add a touch of elegance to living rooms, offices, and sunrooms.

For troubleshooting, sudden leaf drop can be caused by shock from a sudden change in environment, such as a move to a new home or a change in temperature or humidity. Gradually acclimate the plant to its new environment and maintain consistent care conditions. Yellowing leaves can indicate overwatering, nutrient deficiency, or pests. Allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings, fertilize the plant, and inspect it for pests. Insufficient light can cause the leaves to lose their vibrant color. Move the plant to a location with brighter, indirect light. Keep an eye out for common rubber plant pests like mealybugs and scale insects. If detected, treat the plant with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
