Can anyone please tell me what is growing from my plant please iv had it 5 years and suddenly the feelers appeared many thanks tracey
Flower spikes? Not convinced that's a ficus elastica rubber plant.
Hello Tracey '
Your 'rubber-plant' is actually Peperomia galioides ; I believe it's a Central American forest dweller .
Ficus are rubber trees , no way related to yours . It looks a real beauty and you've done well to cultivate it to that standard ; the spikes which have appeared are immature flower spikes (should be white) .
Hi thanks it's was my daughters and I caught her chopping it ! So I took it off her and iv just moved into a new build and it's gone crazy as my others have ?Do you think it will flower?
Hi Tracey ;
Think it's in the process of flower production at any time ; should bear white spikes .
It is really Peperomia, but I guess Peperomia obtusifolia, American Rubber Plant. It is very interesting, indeed.
Well sought out DW
