A well know house plant, instantly recognisable for its leathery, glossy, evergreen leaves. Indian Rubber Plants are reliable, undemanding and easy to grow. This popular plant enjoys a sunny position but copes well with shade, making it useful for those darker north facing rooms in your home. Over many years, with a little care, it will form a splendid indoor tree making a superb focal point. Height: Up to 300cm (118"). Spread: Up to 150cm (59").

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.

Position Ficus elastica in a warm room away from cold draughts and radiators, with a constant temperature of between 16C (60F) and 24C (75F). Avoid positions which receive sudden drops in temperature as this may cause the plant to drops its leaves. Rubber Plants thrive in a brightly lit spot, avoiding the direct glare of the sun - however they can cope remarkably well in a more shaded position.
Water regularly between spring and autumn, allowing the pot to drain well after each watering. In winter, reduce watering but do not allow the compost to dry out completely. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. Any necessary pruning should be undertaken between in autumn or winter. Avoid moving Rubber Plants too often to prevent leaf drop.
