Elevate your indoor space with the striking beauty of the Rubber Plant (Ficus elastica, Ficus robusta), a botanical marvel that effortlessly captivates plant enthusiasts and collectors alike. The expert team at Happy Houseplants meticulously selects each specimen for its lush foliage and robust growth, which embodies the timeless allure of nature's craftsmanship.

The Rubber Plant, renowned for its glossy, broad leaves and stately presence, adds a touch of elegance to any indoor sanctuary. Its verdant foliage creates a sense of tranquillity and sophistication, commanding attention with its striking visual appeal. 

Originating from the rainforests of Southeast Asia, the Rubber Plant thrives in warm, humid environments, making it an ideal choice for indoor cultivation. Whether displayed as a focal point or incorporated into a lush green ensemble, this versatile plant lends a touch of natural grandeur to your home decor. 

Caring for the Rubber Plant is both rewarding and straightforward: 

Light Requirements: The Rubber Plant thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. Place it near a window with filtered light to promote healthy growth and vibrant foliage. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, which can scorch its leaves.

Temperature and Humidity: Maintain room temperatures between 18°C and 24°C (65°F and 75°F) and provide moderate to high humidity levels. Mist the leaves regularly or place the plant on a pebble tray filled with water to enhance humidity.

Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings, and water thoroughly when needed. During the growing season (spring and summer), increase watering frequency, and reduce it in the dormant season (fall and winter).

Soil and Potting: Plant your Rubber Plant in well-draining potting mix enriched with organic matter. Ensure the pot has drainage holes to prevent waterlogging, and repot the plant as needed to accommodate its growth.

Fertilising: Feed your Rubber Plant with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every four to six weeks during the growing season. This will provide essential nutrients for healthy foliage and robust growth.

Size: W17cm x H50cm

Styling with the Rubber Plant offers endless possibilities: 

Statement Piece: Showcase the Rubber Plant as a standalone statement piece in a decorative pot, allowing its majestic foliage to command attention and infuse your space with natural beauty.

Indoor Oasis: Incorporate the Rubber Plant into a lush green ensemble, pairing it with other foliage plants to create a serene indoor oasis that promotes relaxation and well-being.

Our Rubber Plant specimens are hand-picked for their lush foliage and robust growth, arriving in pristine condition and ready to enhance your indoor sanctuary. Immerse yourself in the timeless beauty of the Rubber Plant and experience the transformative power of nature's elegance.
