DESCRIPTION

The ficus elastica is a gorgeous houseplant and is sure to be the perfect addition to your indoor jungle.

The rubber plant gets its name from the white latex running through its veins, which was once used to make rubber. Its luscious, glossy leaves have a thick, rubber-like look.

This elegant houseplant is very low-maintenance so you won’t need to worry too much about caring for it. Just another reason why this plant is perfect for plant newbies or time poor plant lovers.

This little guy also has countless health benefits, providing helpful energy when needed. It also gets busy while you’re sleeping and absorbs CO2 and other toxins at night which makes it particularly good in the bedroom.

Please note: the variety of ficus elastica may vary from the photo.

Please note: people with asthma and latex allergies should avoid this plant.

PLANT CARE

Ficus Elastica like a bright position in your home. They do not tolerate low light levels. We recommend watering weekly in the Summer, from the base and allow to soak for 10 minutes in a sink with cool water, If the soil looks damp, let it dry out a little before adding more water.

Feed with a generic houseplant feed every couple of months however this shouldn’t be needed for the first 3-6 months. Check the soil weekly and only water if the top 3-4 inches are dry.

The leaves are a beautiful glossy green – keep them shiny with a quick wipe of a damp cloth once a month.
