Rubber Plant (50cm)


About me 

AKA: Ficus Elastica

My waxy green leaves and my relatively easy care routine have made me a popular houseplant since the Victorian times.

In my native South Asia, I can grow up to 100 feet tall!

Care instructions 


  • I like indirect light and can deal with a range of conditions 
  • Wipe my leaves every so often as my pores can blocked with dust which stops me absorbing sunlight


  • Water me whenever the top few inches of my soil are dry
  • I also love a good misting every few weeks


  • Feed me once a month from Spring to Summer with half strength fertiliser


Toxic if ingested

Find me a pot

This 50cm tall Rubber Plant comes in a 15cm plastic nursery pot, so will fit in a decorative pot >16cm; we have some suggestions at the bottom of the page.
