    Here’s a BOO-tiful Ficus elastica for your houseplant collection–Chroma ‘Ghost Rider’. This rubber tree has glossy, ovate-shaped leaves, splattered in varying shades of green and ghostly, creamy white. Leaf petioles are red to orange and grow from green stems. Like other rubber trees, ‘Ghost Rider’ grows in an upright habit. Unlike its nocturnal namesake, however, this rare cultivar thrives in the light of day, and will reveal its ghostly allure and the spectral beauty of its variegation most prominently when given bright light.

    Not for human or animal consumption.

    Maintenance Notes: 
    • For optimal performance, keep your Rubber Plant at 60-85°F (15-29°C). 
    • Be sure to position your Rubber Plant away from cold drafts and forced air or, like other ficuses, it may drop its leaves.
    • Rubber Plants thrive in bright light. They are not low light plants and need to be positioned in front of a window for best results.  Some direct sun is beneficial, from an east- or west-facing window, or even your sunniest window. If you have a variegated Rubber Plant, it will display the strongest variegation if given as much bright light as possible.
    • Rubber Plants prefer to dry out in between waterings. Therefore, allow the top 2-3 inches of soil to dry out before giving your Rubber Plant a good soaking. Do not allow it to sit in standing water after thoroughly saturated. 
    • Feed your Rubber Plant once per month at half strength when it is actively growing. Reduce frequency of fertilization in the winter months. If no new leaves are growing, it does not need to be fertilized.
    • Protect furniture when watering & fertilizing.
    • If you would like a bushier Rubber Plant, prune your plant to promote branching. The plant exudes a white, milky sap when pruned or broken, so if your skin comes in contact with it, wash your hands immediately.
    • Your Rubber Plant has the potential to grow fairly quickly given ideal conditions. When it is time to pot up your Rubber Plant, use an all purpose potting mix with added orchid bark and perlite to ensure good drainage and plenty of nutrients. 
    • Rubber Plants have broad leaves that should be dusted regularly to ensure proper absorption of light for photosynthesis.
