Rubber Tree

Ficus Elastica

If you're looking for a beautiful, low-maintenance, and rubber-producing plant, boy do we have a plant for you.

Purifies Air

Technically all plants purify the air. This one is just really, really good at it.

A Good Gift

Low care and adaptable to most indirect light situations. How can they resist?

Pet Friendly

If Spike were to eat your plant, he'd be totally fine. Your heart? Not so much.

The Ficus Elastica, more commonly known as the Rubber plant is a species belonging to the fig family (Moraceae). They are native to India and can grow up to 50ft+ in the wild. Don't worry, they're more likely to be 3~10ft indoors.

Rubber plants enjoy medium to bright, filtered sunlight. Regular waterings and ample sunlight will result in a happy and fast-growing plant. Avoid drafts and cold rooms.


Size will vary, but total height is around 10 inches and planter width is 6 inches.

How to not kill me

Watering

Water once a week

If that's too hard then we suggest getting a pet rock. Palms like to be slightly damp, but not wet.

Sunlight

Medium to Bright Indirect

Almost as adaptable and versatile as Bill Murray, this plant can handle most indoor lighting situations, but definitely prefers it to be on the brighter side. It should never be exposed to direct light.

Humidity

Slays in high humidity

It comes from the tropics so mist it frequently with a spray bottle, or use a humidifier to amp up the moisture in your space. It'll thank you by looking good and staying alive.
