About Rubber Plant & Pot
Given the botanical name ‘Ficus Elastica’, the Rubber Plant can be naturally found in areas all across the equator. Amazingly, it is believed to be the first deliberately bred species for agriculture in the Middle East 11,000 years ago!!! Its milky white sap was used for latex, which in turn enabled industrialists to fabricate rubber roughly 200 years ago. To go alongside this rugged plant, why not match your ficus elastica with one of our ceramic pots?
The rubber plant can also purify the air in your home! Converting carbon dioxide into oxygen, this indoor plant is fantastic for these wanting cleaner air in their home or workspace. Improve your physical and mental health with a ficus elastica!
This easy-care plant is ideal for those new to gardening and horticulture. Simply water your indoor plant bi-weekly and place it in a bright spot (out of direct sunlight) and you’re ready to go! For best results, we suggest you avoid over-watering and supplement your soil with fertiliser during its growing season.
