Variegated Rubber Tree has put on fantastic growth this year, and is on the Autumn 'To Repot' list. My head says plastic pot for practicality, but my heart says a nice big, rounded, ceramic pot 💙🤔 #rubbertree #rubbertree-variegated #ficus-elastica #ficus-elastica-variegata #houseplant #houseplants #oldlanehouseplants #foliage #foliagefriday #indoorgarden #indoorgardening #indoorplants

Thank you all, gonna go with Joan, and repot it into a plastic pot, and get a big ceramic planter to sit it in. And thanks for the lovely comments about the Houseplants, its all trial and error for me, I do nothing other than water and mist, I rarely ever...I never feed my plants🪴😲 @sharonhayden @charlotte @jacaranda @gjones @Auricula @juliesgarden @joannie.a

The Rubber Tree is loving life outside and the new leaves are an amazing colour ❤ #rubber-tree #rubbertree-variegated #ficus-elastica #ficus-elastica-variegata #houseplant #houseplants #oldlanehouseplants #houseplantholiday

😄 They always come through reddish pink, but I've never seen it this vibrant a colour, which is a bit odd as it gets less sun where it is outside than where it was inside 🤔 @anges

I'm not sure why it's coming up so bright red, I guess it's responding in the same way as succulents do??🤔 @pelly
