This item is currently out of stock :-(

Common name: Rubber plant 

Native to:  The Ficus genus is native to the tropics of East Asia - the 'Robusta' originates from India and Indonesia.

Description:  This ultra chic Ficus elastica 'Robusta' with its broad, glossy leaves is a modern variety closest to the true Ficus elastica species in appearance.  As the name suggests, it's a strong plant with a moderate to fast growth rate.  

*** Plant size on delivery: Approx. 40cm with pot ***

Difficulty: Easy

Light: Bright, indirect light is best. Direct sunshine will generally scorch the leaves although a few hours of morning sunshine is fine. Will tolerate lower light areas. 

Water:  Drench the plant with tepid water and allow to drain. Allow the potting mix dry out before the next watering. These plants are forgiving if underwatered, whereas root rot is a far more difficult recovery. 

Temperature: These plants enjoy typical indoor temperatures (18-24°C / 64-75 F) 

Humidity: No specific humidity requirements, although higher humidity would be preferable.

Fertiliser: Once the plant has acclimatised to its position, a weak solution of general houseplant fertiliser can be applied monthly throughout summer.  

Potting mix: We pot these in a loose, chunky, well draining potting mix.

Notes:  Wipe the leaves occasionally with a damp sponge to keep them clean & glossy.
