How to care

Light: Ficus elastica prefers bright, indirect light but does cope quite well in lower light conditions.

Water: Water when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil moist at all times, but do not over water as this will cause leaf drop.

Temperature: Ideal temperatures are 16-24°C. Avoid cold draughts.

Humidity: No specific requirements, although the occasional misting wouldn’t go amiss.

Feed: Apply a weak dose of a fertiliser once or twice a month during the growing season.

Care tips: Insufficient light or incorrect watering can trigger leaf drop. Adjust as necessary and your plant should quickly recover. Wipe the leaves occasionally with a damp cloth to prevent dust accumulation. Note: Ficus sap contains sticky latex which can be an irritant, therefore wash your hands if any comes into contact with your skin.

Air Purifying: This plant filters airborne toxins and is part of our clean air plant collection.

Height and Growth Rate: In their native environment, Ficus elastica can grow to many metres tall. As an indoor house plant, it is up to you: simply trim to maintain your desired height. Typical indoor heights are anything from 30cm to 2m. Moderate to fast growing.
