Usages

Garden Use
Baby rubber plant is grown for its attractive, meaty, blunt foliage in tropical gardens. The existence of many variegated hybrids makes it even more of a favourite. Because of its low and lush growth, it is used as a front-row plant and works well as a ground cover in bright but semi-shaded locations. Also, baby rubber plant is even more popular as a houseplant.
