Excellent service and good quality plants. Items were dispatched very quickly, packaged well, and with good communication throughout. So far the plants look great and seem to be adjusting to their new home well.Can't fault at all, would recommend and will definitely be using again.

I usually don’t write reviewsI usually don’t write reviews, but this one was owed. Before purchasing my gorgeous Bird of Paradise I contacted the Company and got in touch with Cliah who went above and beyond to accommodate my request. Needless to say I received the plant in one day and is absolutely delightful. A very well deserved 5 start to them!

My Devil's Ivy plant arrived within a couple of days, very well packaged and totally healthy. Absolutely love it and the macrame hanger I ordered at the same time. Also, I made an email enquiry to oxy-plants and had the loveliest response. Such a positive experience, I strongly recommend this company for its efficiency and value for money.

When we wanted some advice about the right plants for our office space, Oxy-Plants were the obvious choice. There was lots of useful information on the website, and the customer service was second to none. When we had a problem, they fixed it, quickly and efficiently. We love the plants and love the prices - delivery was easy and the plants well packaged.

How To Care For Rubber Plant

Less is more with Rubber Plants, so only water the soil once the top half dries out, feeling the pot’s weight for confirmation. Reduce this in the colder months to replicate its dormancy period and to avoid over-watering. Don’t have anything to water with? Try one of our watering cans!

Similarly to most other houseplants, ‘bright, indirect light is best for quality growth. Specimens placed in darker locations will lose their patterns (if variegated), along with the increased chance of root rot and stalled growth.

This plant thrives in a stable, humid environment, so mist fairly frequently for great success. If you don’t have anything to mist with, invest in one of our luxury water misters.

It may be wise to invest in well-draining soil for your Ficus Elastica. Rubber plants really hate presiding in water-logged soil!

Give your rubber plant a boost during spring and summer by adding plant fertiliser fortnightly. We recommend you use some well-balanced, slow-release, fertiliser. Something like Miracle-Gro Push Feed All Purpose.

As with any plant, your Ficus Elastica may become susceptible to pests and little critters such as mealybugs, scales, and spider mites. If this occurs, we have the perfect solution. Simply order one of our unique natural insecticides (neem oil) and treat until resolved!

If your rubber plant is on the smaller side (0-30cm) take a look at your plant’s roots every six months. If the roots are touching the sides of your nursery pot, it is time for a new planter! If your plant is well established (80-100cm), check the roots every other year and follow the same procedure as with smaller plants.

About Rubber Plant

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.

Top tips for your Rubber Plant:

  • This hardy plant will be able to thrive in a number of different light conditions!
  • If you’re something of a seasoned grower, why don’t you try propagating?
  • If your leaves are beginning to look a little dusty, be sure to give them a quick mist.
  • Fancy conducting some more research? We found Gardening Know How’s article to be of real help.

Rubber Plant Toxicity:

Rubber plants are considered toxic to humans and pets. Beware if you have children or pets in the house as this plant is classified as poisonous; if parts of the plants are eaten, vomiting, nausea and a loss of appetite could occur. Consumption of large quantities must be dealt with quickly; acquire medical assistance for further information. The sap can also cause dermatitis and skin allergy to sensitive individuals, so be sure to wear gloves when handling.
