ficus elastica black knight indoor plant

Ficus Elastica 'Black Knight'


The Ficus Elastica is a spectacular indoor plant with thick, glossy leaves that are almost jet black. It is strong and sturdy but doesn’t like change - so pick a bright spot and let it do its thing! This can grow to a tall height but nicking the trunk lower down with a knife and applying cloning paste will encourage branching.
