Gemma's survival guide
The Ficus Yellow Gem, or Ficus Altissima is a beautiful rubber tree that is easy to care for. Gemma is actually one of Evelyn and Eileen's cousins and loves to brag about how she'll have more followers on instagram than they do one day. Right now she's still a tiny baby but her powerful roots allow her to grow quickly. Just give her enough indirect light and she'll grow grow grow on you!
Our Care App will help you after your purchase.
What makes Gemma so special
There's more to this girl than meets the eye. You see, Gemma here actually has some pretty dark roots! In the native forests that grow the Ficus Altissima, Gemma is known as a strangler tree. That's right, Gemma will germinate on top of an existing tree to eventually overtake it completely. We've talked to her about her past and she's promised not to do any strangling at Plantsome, or at your home!
Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier. While all plants do purify your air to an extent, it's significantly less than this green amigo would like to take credit for! Wanna learn more? Read about it here.
