I saw your question on Ficus Ruby. I have one and its a fast grower,hardy and mine grew from a small 4 leafed 4" potted plant to 12 x12' plant in 4 years..IN A POT! I'm afraid to plant it. Its much more everything-color,growth rate, than plain Ficus elastica variegata. I think Dave on the palm board posted photos of one a year ago in Santa Ana That was a true tree already. olor..more red all the time then F.e.v.
