This gorgeous Ficus Elastica Robusta boasts, rubbery dark green, glossy leaves that grow from on a woody trunk which gives an exotic look that will become a talking point no matter where you put it. This plant's green leaves will bring a touch of the outdoors to any spot in your home. Easy to look after, this tall houseplant thrives in indirect, bright light and only needs watering lightly once a week to keep the soil from drying out, don't allow the soil to become soggy as this may rot the roots. For the best results, wipe down the plant's leaves with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it free of dust and grime.

The Ficus Robusta prefers to be kept at temperatures between 16°C-24°C and you'll need to place it away from a cold draught to ensure your plant has the best chance of thriving. Whilst it prefers to kept in bright, indirect light, it will also tolerate low light conditions. 

When watering this plant, we recommend that you wait until the soil is slightly dry at the top - be aware that if you overwater this plant, it can cause leaf drop so whilst the soil should be kept moist at all times, make sure you're not watering it too often and your pot has drainage holes to allow excess water to escape.

Right Packaging

As an online plant store, we recognise the need to protect the environment and have thought very carefully about the packaging we use and where we buy it from to make sure your plants turn up in good condition with the least impact on the environment.

When it comes to packaging, our philosophy takes the following into account:

Sustainability - all of the packaging we used can be fully reused, recycled or composted. And, in the unfortunate event that it does make its way to landfill, it will biodegrade, leaving nothing but humus behind.

The right packaging for the job - we want our plants to arrive in perfect condition so we have designed packaging that holds your plants safely and securely inside the box, meaning they turn up in great condition.

What's our packaging made from?

Our outer packaging is made from corrugated cardboard. This cardboard can withstand the weight of your plants and is not susceptible to moisture so will remain strong and stable until your plants are delivered and you’re ready to unpack them. Not only that, it will keep your plants safe and undamaged in transit.

As well as being perfect for keeping your plants safe, corrugated cardboard is easy to recycle and is in keeping with our commitment to ensure we use the more environmentally friendly packaging as possible.

Packaging sustainability

We have chosen to partner with a packaging supplier that has the same environmental values as us. All packaging uses 85% recycled material and is 100% recyclable and compostable. This commitment to the environment is backed up by a Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) accreditation and ISO 14001 accreditation for their environmental management system.
