Ficus Abidjan

R280.00

Owning a Rubber Plant is all about the retro-chic of broad, shiny leaves. Ficus elastica Abidjan is a modern variety that is very close to the original species in appearance, but with leaves that are wider and more glossy. Being one of the best air-filtering plants available, and low-maintenance too, Abidjan is a great plant to add lush, tropical foliage to your interior spaces.

How to care

Light: Ficus elastica Abidjan 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 overwater as this will cause leaf drops.

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 Abidjan can grow to many meters 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.
