Searching for non-burgandy Rubber Plant

Hi All, I have been trying to find either Ficus elastica 'Doescherii' or the plain green Ficus elastica, I just don't want a burgandy one that you find everywhere. I would be happy to trade or just be pointed in the direction of how to purchase one. I can't even find someplace to buy from on the internet here in the U.S.

Thanks so much!

Have you checked places such as Home Depot or Lowe's? I was in Lowe's the other day and they had a variegated one with a reddish blush. I have a variegated one (sans the red blush) but that came in a basket plant arrangement from a local florist. Home Depot also tends to carry some larger specimens in their houseplant collection-- it's always worth at least checking there! Sometimes even Walmart gets in semi unusual plants.

I have a large one at my work I have been thinking about air layering... I would love a variegated and Ruby one! I can't find them locally at a decent price.

Hi Dali! I did end up picking up a variegated rubber plant and it has grown a ton and I was planning on trimming it down this spring. I have had a lot of luck planting cuttings using rooting hormone. I haven't tried that with the rubber tree yet, but I can look into that to see if that would work. Otherwise I can look into air layering and we can make a trade when the weather is warm enough to mail cuttings! Thanks for contacting me! Tami
