Plantsmith Rubber Plant

If you are looking for a tough, evergreen houseplant that is easy to look after then a rubber plant could be for you. A member of the fig family, Moraceae, and native to Southeast Asia these plants can escalate to an impressive height in the wild.

Large, dark green, glossy oval leaves shine from a central vertical stem to make a tall neat potted houseplant. Try the intensely dark F. elastica ‘Black Prince’ or lighten up a space with the variegated, more compact variety ‘Tineke’ boasting attractive green and cream foliage often with a pink tinge when leaves are young.
