Ficus elastica moonshine, also known as the moonshine rubber plant or the Shivereana moonshine, is a cultivar of the rubber plant (Ficus elastica) that is known for its variegated foliage. The leaves of this plant are green with creamy white or yellowish streaks or blotches, giving it a distinctive appearance. The variegation can vary in intensity, with some plants having more white than green, and others having more green than white.

Ficus elastica moonshine is a slow-growing plant that can reach a height of 6 feet or more in its natural habitat. However, it is typically grown as a houseplant, where it will reach a height of 2-3 feet. It is a relatively easy plant to care for, but it does require some specific conditions to thrive.

Ficus elastica moonshine prefers bright, indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while too little light will cause the variegation to fade. The plant should be watered when the soil is dry to the touch. It is important to avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot.

Ficus elastica moonshine is also a bit sensitive to humidity. It is best to keep the plant in a humid environment, such as a bathroom or kitchen. If the humidity is too low, the leaves may start to dry out and drop.

With proper care, Ficus elastica moonshine can be a beautiful and long-lived houseplant. It is a great choice for people who are looking for a plant with unique foliage and low maintenance requirements.
