Black Prince Rubber Tree
Even if you don’t want to grow a really tall tree like plant indoors, the Rubber Plant’s size can be restricted to an extent with regular pruning. However you have to keep in mind these houseplants are determined to grow upwards, no matter what and don’t stay small and compact forever, eventually requiring a certain amount vertical of space.
Around 30 years Rubber Plants were incredibly popular, but people started to live in more modern homes and apartments which tend to be smaller. Space became a premium and one of the first things to go was the giant Rubber Plant in the corner!
They fell out of fashion and became hard to find. Fortunately within the last 5 years they’ve bounced back and are once again fashionable and prominent statement houseplants and for good reason. They’re easy to care for and very forgiving house guests.
