Ficus elastica 'Abidjan' - rubber plant & basket combination

  • Position: bright but indirect light

    The large glossy leaves of this rubber plant are attractively flushed with burgundy-bronze. Not only do they look good, but they are also one of the best for filtering out impurities from the air, which makes them perfect for both the home and office.

  • Home care: These are easy plants to care for as long as you are careful with the watering. Only water once the compost is dry to the touch, and make sure that the plant isn't left standing in water. You can mist the leaves during the summer to increase the humidity. Occasionally wash the leaves with a damp sponge or cloth to keep the foliage glossy. Try to maintain an average temperature no lower than 12°C in the winter, and avoid any sudden drops in the temperature and cold draughts.
