Plant Details

The rubber plant, or Ficus Elastica, is a species of plant in the fig genus native to North Eastern India and surrounding regions. This plant was dubbed “the rubber plant” due to its sticky latex sap that was discovered to dry into a low quality rubber. However, this plant is not to be confused with the more famous rubber tree, (Hevea Brasiliensis) indigenous to the Amazon region of South America.

The Ficus Elastica enjoys moderate to bright indirect sunlight. Its deep purple and green leaves have a waxy coat that provides a beautiful glossy sheen. New growth often also exhibits shades of pink within the veins, making this a colorful, yet elegant statement plant. With proper lighting and watering habits the rubber plant will grow quickly, often doubling in size within a year.

    SERVICE AREAS
    Greenery Unlimited delivers to the following locations:

    • Manhattan
    • Brooklyn
    • Queens

    Greenery Unlimited offers next day delivery for orders placed before 12pm Monday through Friday. We do not deliver on Sundays, so orders placed Saturday will go out the following Monday. In case of inclement weather, we will automatically reschedule deliveries for the next day we deem safe for the health of the plant, and will send out a notification email with the updated schedule.

    Someone must be available to receive the delivery. If no one will be there to receive the delivery, you may give us permission to leave the plant outside the delivery address in the checkout notes. However we cannot acquiesce this request during the winter or in severe weather. If no one is there to receive the delivery and we are unable to leave it behind, a re-delivery fee will be incurred. Cancelled orders will incur a 20% restocking fee once they have been prepared for delivery.

  • Light Requirements

    This is a high light plant. It will do best close to a south or east facing window, or directly against a north or west facing window.

    Please note that obstructions can cause a considerable decrease in the available light. Windows facing other buildings or alleys, especially on the bottom floors, are particularly susceptible.

    The surest way to see if your space receives the light required for a potted plant is to take a light meter reading. Please see our Lighting Guide for instructions.

  • Plant Care

    CARE LEVEL
    Moderate.

    LIGHT REQUIREMENTS
    Prefers bright indirect light, but is adaptable to medium light conditions.

    WATER REQUIREMENTS
    Be sure to water your plant upon delivery. Rubber plants prefer moderately moist soil. A thorough watering when the top 1" - 2" of the soil are dry is ideal. This plant is sensitive to overwatering and susceptible to root rot.

    HUMIDITY PREFERENCE
    Medium humidity. Place your plant away from hot or cold air drafts.  This plant appreciates a gentle misting: the large leaves are dust collectors, and misting will help keep the leaves clean.
