Its first pruning reveals. (Ficus elastica (Assam Rubber))

This week was this plants first pruning..first a small-big houseplant outdoors. Then a shrubby mess,they tied up with string,..now they got it just right. A nice small tree and you can also see Ficus benjamina,Schefflera arboricola variegated..and in the backyard an Avocaco tree. All very appropriate for this Spanish style home.

I see the avocado tree. The Bay Area has some of the nicest, big avocado trees.

I like too Andy,the whole houseplant- given- freedom angle. Its always a kick to see what was once a little thing..planted out in Earth,sun, and become something.

I have seen several Ficus benjamina that size in the SF Bay Area. There used to be one in Castro Valley next to an apartment building. I think it died in the 1998 freeze or was cut down after it. I think it was damaged and the people probably thought it was dead.
