Few plants have generated as much hype as the Rubber Plant. Perhaps only its cousin, the Fiddle Leaf Fig, can claim that venerable spot.

Having graced Instagram Feeds and Decor Glossies for some time, the charm of Elastica is having a large verdant tree inside your home. With its sculptural deep-green leaves and red new-leaf sheaths, the Rubber Plant will truly delight.

What's more, these trees are incredibly undemanding! Enter into a good regular care routine and Elastica will only be too happy to reward you with consistent new growth.

Please note: The latex found inside Rubber trees can lead to irritation on the skin and can be toxic to pets and humans if consumed.

Follow these instructions to keep your Rubber Plant healthy and happy.

Water: Keep soil evenly moist, allowing top to dry out between watering 
Light: Medium to Bright indirect Light
Humidity: Normal room humidity, no adjustments required
Fertilize: Balanced Liquid Fertilizer, spring through summer, every 2 weeks
