Rubber Plant - Ficus elastica 'Robusta'
A retro plant in some books, we think the Rubber Plant is fantastic for the design-conscious - paired up with some mid-century modern furniture perhaps?
Rubber plants can grow up to around 6ft tall but can be trimmed if you want to keep the plant at a smaller size.
- Likes bright, indirect light
- Water when the top layer of soil is slightly dry
- Can be misted occasionally
- Can benefit from fertiliser in the growing season
- Leaves may need the occasional dusting
- Ensure there is good drainage
- Toxic - also avoid if allergic to latex
Pot diameter: 14cm.
All our plants come in a plastic nursery pot as standard.
Decorative pots are sold separately and can be found here.
