Also known as the rubber plant, natural rubber used to be extracted from this plant before an alternative was found. If the plant is cut white latex will flow from the wound. Ficus elastica  is a stunning indoor plant, standing out with its rich tones of bronze and burgundy leaf colour. Occasionally wipe the leaves with a cloth dipped in buttermilk or wipe with a commercial leaf gloss to give the leaves a lovely sheen. This plant filters toxins, purifying the air.
