Ficus Elastica growing as it should in Bora Bora. Here, we would call it a rubber tree and try to grow it indoors.

I'm more familiar with the Ficus benjamina, can't tell you how many I've helped to an early grave.

Nice to see a ficus in great shape.

Nice to see a grown up one, mine never made it either.

I have two indoor ones, they do relatively well, but are temperamental, when they go into a snit, they drop all their leaves, but with TLC they recover.
