    Hello all, I’ve just been gifted this plant for Thanksgiving. I first thought it was a rubber tree plant, but I’m not so sure because the tips of leaves aren’t pointy like another I’ve got. Anybody have any idea?

    Hello Bob,

    It certainly does look similar to a ficus elastica, but I’m not an expert.

    • If it’s a ficus elastic, leaves are alternate.
    • If leaves are opposite, it’s a clusia

    From what I see on the pictures, it seems like leaves are paired and opposite, so it’s probably a clusia.

    Perhaps someone else could pitch in because I don’t have any myself…

    Have a nice day

    Hi @cultivator, @bobkinger – I concur: Clusia for sure!
