    Product Description

    Fiscus elastica, the well-known rubber plant is making a well-deserved comeback into homes across the country! Now you can grow this marvellous indoor plant in your own home.

    For years, a staple houseplant, no home was complete without its large, glossy leaves and hugely ornamental growing habit.

    An easy to grow, tropical plant, 'Robusta' gets its name from its sturdy leaves - much bigger than the old-fashioned plants that used to grace conservatories and parlours.

    Recognised as a great plant to clean the air in your home, a NASA study revealed that the Rubber Plant will help remove benzene, giving you a cleaner atmosphere in your home. 

    Supplied as a potted plant in a 21cm nursery pot.

    Plant Information

    Top Tips

    • Avoid cold temperatures (less than 12șC) and keep out of draughts. Avoid moving your plant around if it is happy where it is, as they dislike disturbance.

    Care Guide

  • Grow your rubber plant in a sunny position out of direct sunlight - a bright east facing windowsill is ideal.
  • Only water when the top of the compost is dry and allow to dry out between waterings as plants dislike soggy roots.
  • A native of India, the rubber plant likes a bit of humidity, so avoid radiators and you can increase humidity by misting the leaves daily or standing in a gravel tray.
  • Plants are frost tender so keep indoors at all times and keep temperatures above 12șC and avoid draughts.
  • Leaves can be cleaned with a wet sponge if necessary, although plants do benefit from a dousing in the rain during the summer.
  • Repot in May or June of the roots are pot-bound.
  • If your plant gets too tall, you can prune out the growing tip and the tree will develop side branches.
