Size

Part of the fig family this is a hardy, fast growing houseplant that can fill space quickly. This plant has broad dark green, glossy foliage and in its natural environment in southeast Asia can grow to over 30m tall.

Light conditions: indirect, bright light (for example not on a windowsill that gets direct sun at any point in the day)
Neediness: relatively easy to care for and forgiving of non-intentional neglect, however it's large waxy leaves need occasional dusting with a damp cloth and avoid overwatering.
Watering: Water weekly throughout the warmer months but only if the soil is dry to touch - get it wrong and this plant will let you know by dropping its leaves. Water less frequently during the cooler months.
Ideal location: bedrooms, living rooms, corridors and studies
Rate of growth: fast growing, in the right conditions. You can expect a height of 3m for a well-cared (and not regularly pruned) Ficus Elastica Robusta. Constant pruning will help encourage new growth off the sides of the central stem.
Temperature: keep at normal room temperature, avoid cold draughts and sudden changes in temperature. Do not allow the temperature to drop below 12°C during the winter months.
Pets: this plant is toxic to cats and dogs. See our range of pet friendly plants if your pet is prone to nibbling.
Sizing: Tall: W27cm x H90cm, XL W30cm x H140cm 
Also known as: Ficus Elastica Robusta

(Does not include decorative pot.)

It’s not just our products that are green. 95% of our packaging is either biodegradable or recyclable (and we’re working hard on that last 5%). As a company we’ve made a concerted effort to switch to sustainable packaging, it costs twice the price, but we sleep better at night.

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
