Description
Better known as the Rubber plant, this reliable house plant is unswervingly popular! The large, dark green, leathery leaves are beautifully glossy, with paler undersides. Ficus elastica 'Robusta' has an upright habit, forming a magnificent indoor tree over many years. This ‘easy to grow’ house plant is perfect for a bright room, but copes extremely well with a more shaded position, making it a useful specimen plant for those tricky north facing rooms. Height: 300cm (118"). Spread: 150cm (59").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.

How to Grow
Position Ficus elastica in a warm room away from cold draughts and radiators, with a constant temperature of between 16C (60F) and 24C (75F). Avoid positions which receive sudden drops in temperature as this may cause the plant to drops its leaves. Rubber Plants thrive in a brightly lit spot, avoiding the direct glare of the sun - however they can cope remarkably well in a more shaded position.
More Info
Water regularly between spring and autumn, allowing the pot to drain well after each watering. In winter, reduce watering but do not allow the compost to dry out completely. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. Any necessary pruning should be undertaken between in autumn or winter. Avoid moving Rubber Plants too often to prevent leaf drop.
Caution

Caution: irritant to skin and eyes
