Rubber plants (ficus elastica) are retro chic defined. They're also very low maintenance. This variety has gorgeous dark leaves with a red vein and almost bronze tint. Scroll down to choose a pot that fits it perfectly.    

Light: They prefer bright, indirect light but can cope pretty well in lower light conditions.

Water: Water when the soil becomes a bit dry at the top. They don't like to dry out too much. If you notice leaves dropping off, its possibly due to overwatering or insufficient light. 

Humidity: They're not particularly fussy, but wouldn't mind the odd misting. Wipe their leaves clean with a soft cloth every once in a while. 

Height and growth rate: They are moderate to fast growing plants (in the right conditions) and can get up to 2 metres tall.

Feed: A weak dose of liquid feed every 3-4 weeks in spring and summer will set it up nicely. 

Toxicity: Toxic if ingested so keep away from children and animals. Ficus leaf sap can also be an irritant. 

Origin: India and Indonesia.
