    Good to inquire before planting a Rubber Tree in the ground. Easily maintained in a container, once planted in the ground it can grow very quickly and the
    roots can invade pipes and foundations.
    Not recommended for a home garden planting. Enjoy a Rubber Tree in a container on your patio.
