Common name are Indian Rubber Bush, Ficus decora, India Rubber Tree, Rubber Plant, Rubber plant black prince, Ficus elastica zulu shield, the rubber fig etc. It is an evergreen perennial attractive shining foliage plant, popular as indoor house plant and also outdoor tree. 

It is a large tree in the Banyan group of figs, growing to 30–40 metres tall, with a stout trunk up to 2 metres in diameter. The trunk develops aerial and buttressing roots to anchor it in the soil and help support heavy branches. It has broad shiny oval leaves 10–35 centimetres long and 5–15 centimetres broad, leaf size is largest on young plant much smaller on old trees.

Inside the new leaf, another immature leaf is waiting to develop.
