Very nice 👍🏼 - I’m currently baby sitting a non-variegated one at the moment for a project on air laying. But I keep seeing variegated ones for sale and it’s been tempting!

@richard.spicer.7906 I got tempted and ended up purchasing two variegated varieties of the Rubber tree (tineke and red ruby) after having the burgundy variety. This ficus is hardy and easy to care for and excellent for home decor. Also, air laying is a technique used to promote new branches/new growth, correct? Are you planning on experimenting the success of air laying on the rubber plant?

We tend to use air layering to produce new plants from existing branches, then when has established enough of its own roots you severe the branch from the parent. Trying it on the Ficus and it’s been a month now, but as it’s winter here in U.K. it might take at least six months for roots to form. I know in some climates it can take a lot less 😊

Be sure to post so we can all see your success using the air layering technique on this ficus. Sounds very cool and promising. @richard.spicer.7906
