The Ficus Elastica ‘Belize’ or ‘Red Ruby’ is a gorgeous eye-catching house plant which has the most unusual new growth. The new foliage emerges with a vibrant pinky red tone which adds impact to the variations of cream and green. As the foliage ages, the colours mellow to a variegated leaf which is attractive in its own right. Its unique patterning is accentuated by a glossy overcoat which magnificently completes each individual oval-shaped leaf
