    Hey, I picked up this plant a few years ago (when it was only a few inches tall) but I still don't know what it is. Let me know if you have any ideas. thanks

    I do believe this is a variegated rubber plant, Ficus Elastica, but I don't know the specific variety. It is a beautiful plant by the way. nice job. It looks as if you have a green thumb. :stew1:

    I agree, it's a variegated rubber plant and it sure is a fine looking plant you have there.

    Rubber Plant would have been my guess too. I've never seen a variegated one though!

    It definitely is a Ficus Elastica, 'tineke' variety. Thanks for your help everyone
