Why We Love It

Generations of foliage-lovers have grown up with the Rubber Plant (Ficus elastica ‘Robusta’).

It’s as popular now as it was in Victorian times, gracing homes with an abundance of glossy, dark-green leaves.

Although plants will tolerate a little direct sunlight early in the day, they prefer to sit in a bright room with filtered light.

Ideal for adding a rainforest-like touch to draught-free living rooms, it's is a doddle to look after too.

How to Plant

Into a Pot

  1. Choose a pot that’s slightly bigger than the plant's temporary container.
  2. Ensure the new pot has drainage holes so excess water can escape.
  3. Part-fill the new pot with a quality houseplant compost.
  4. Remove the temporary container and place the plant in the new pot, so the rootball sits slightly below the pot’s rim (it’ll prevent water from running over the edge).
  5. Fill the gaps around the edges with compost, firm in gently and stand the pot in a saucer.
  6. Water well to settle your new plant in.
