Plants for Garden, Home and Kitchen. Sustainably sourced, delivered from British growers.

One of the most popular house plants, the Rubber plant, also known as a Ficus elastica, has impressive glossy green leafs, and they are much easier to care for than expected!

It likes bright, indirect light. Ficus Elastica originates from South Asia, so it prefers warm temperatures and humidity. Would be great for your bathroom if it can be next to a window! 

To keep your plant healthy and hydrated, be sure to grab an Eco-Friendly Watering Can and Mister.
