Ficus robusta (Variegated Rubber Plant)

Light: Ficus elastica Robusta prefers bright, indirect light but does cope quite well in lower light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight as this will scorch the plant.
Watering Requirements: Water when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil lightly moist at all times, but do not overwater as this will cause leaf drop.
Temperature Requirements: This Ficus does fine in normal household temperatures but will thrive in a slightly warmer environment between 16-24°C. Avoid cold draughts.
Humidity Requirements: This Rubber Plant has no specific humidity requirements, although for an added boost, consider giving your Ficus an occasional misting or relocating to a steamier room like the bathroom or kitchen.
Feed Requirements: Apply a weak dose of fertilizer once or twice a month during the growing season.
Height & Growth Rate: Can grow to many meters tall in its native environment. Indoors, however, it is up to you: simply trim to maintain your desired height. Typical indoor heights are anything from 30cm to 2m. Moderate to fast-growing
Air Purifying: This plant filters airborne toxins such as formaldehyde and carbon monoxide and is part of our clean air plant collection.
Origin: The Ficus genus is native to the tropics of East Asia, while the elastica Robusta species originates from India and Indonesia specifically.
