Someone once said, "Plants are like a box of chocolates, you never know which one you're going to get". Okay, maybe no one said that but you get the idea. No two plants are exactly the same! Your plant might vary slightly from what is pictured. Our aim is to find you a plant that closely resembles the one on our website as much as possible.

A member of the Ficus family, the Elastica is a great air purifier and is quite hardy indoors. It’s referred to as the “Rubber Plant” due to the fact that the plant produces white latex sap which emerges oozes out of the leaves and stems if they're scratched or cut. The latex can be an irritant to the eyes and skin, so handle the plant carefully and make sure you wash it off afterwards and you shouldn't have any issues. Ficus Elastica prefers BRIGHT INDIRECT LIGHT.
LOCATION & LIGHT:
This is a high light plant. It’ll do best directly in front of a south or west-facing window.
Rubber plants prefer moderately moist soil. A thorough watering when the soil is completely dry is ideal.
