These attractive Ficus elastic house plants are commonly known as Indian Rubber plant for their rubbery leaves. They are very easy going and durable plants which will thrive in a range of conditions.
All plants need light, but this rubber plant is quite forgiving. Your plant will do well in most rooms in the house and is also suitable for offices. Rubber plants are happiest at a normal room temperature, with plenty of indirect light and extra humidity to keep their leaves fresh. You may need to mist the plant every so often to stop the tips drying out if your home is very dry.
In the spring and summer when the plant is growing it will need to be watered regularly once the soil is dry on top. In the winter when the plant is resting you won’t need to water as often - once every other week or so may be enough, depending on how quickly your soi is drying in the home. You might like to feed it every month with ordinary houseplant food. Not all of our containers are waterproof, it is best to take the plant out from the outer pot and rest on the draining board or in the shower so the excess water can drain away when you are watering. Leave it draining for an hour before placing it back in its normal position. Do try to give the plant a water with rainwater regularly to help stop any tap water build ups in the soil.
You should expect your plant to grow slowly and will eventually reach from 5ft to 12ft tall
Brown tips to the leaves are the result of a dry atmosphere, try giving your plant a good misting and water more regularly. Yellowing leaves is caused by too much water, leave your plant to drain and dry out more between waterings.
Rubber plants aren’t particularly susceptible to pests but watch out for the normal suspects including aphids and red spider mite.
