The Ficus Elastica or Rubber Tree, is native to South and Southeast Asia. The Rubber Tree has big, dark green leaves.  Great for filling up those big spaces in the home as it will grow tall and give plenty of colour to any room.  Also acting as a great air purifier!

Light

Your Ficus will grow best with consistent, bright indirect light. This will assist in keeping the beautiful creamy variegation prominent on the leaves. We recommend rotating your plant to ensure it gets even sunlight on all sides. In doing so, this should encourage your plant to grow relatively symmetrically.

Maintenance

The large leaves of the Ficus  do attact dust so gently wipe down with a damp cloth.  The Ficus can grow tall and will need to be pruned to maintain the desired height.

Fertiliser

To encourage the big, beautiful leaves that the F. Elastica produces, it’s best to feed your plant during growing season. You can do so with your choice of fertiliser – little and often is best, so use a weak balanced feed every few weeks in spring and summer.

Watering

Keep steadily moist, but don’t allow your plant to sit in water – discard any water remaining in the drip tray after 20-30 minutes. Allow the top layer of soil to dry out before watering again. Water less in the winter months.

Soil

Any loose, fast-draining potting soil will likely do.

Toxicity

Ficus Elastica are mildly toxic. It’s best to keep them out of reach of children and pets as they have a milky sap that can cause irritation if ingested, or if it comes in contact with the skin.
