Light Requirements

This is a high light plant. It will do best close to a south or east facing window, or directly against a north or west facing window.

Please note that obstructions can cause a considerable decrease in the available light. Windows facing other buildings or alleys, especially on the bottom floors, are particularly susceptible.

The surest way to see if your space receives the light required for a potted plant is to take a light meter reading. Please see our Lighting Guide for instructions.

All of our large floor plant sales are final. However, if your plant arrives damaged or does not meet your expectations contact us at care@greenerynyc.com within 24 hours to initiate a replacement or refund on store credit. Please include your order number.

The rubber plant, or Ficus Elastica, is a species of plant in the fig genus native to North Eastern India and surrounding regions. This plant was dubbed “the rubber plant” due to its sticky latex sap that was discovered to dry into a low quality rubber. However, this plant is not to be confused with the more famous rubber tree, (Hevea Brasiliensis) indigenous to the Amazon region of South America.

The Ficus Elastica enjoys moderate to bright indirect sunlight. Its deep purple and green leaves have a waxy coat that provides a beautiful glossy sheen. New growth often also exhibits shades of pink within the veins, making this a colorful, yet elegant statement plant. With proper lighting and watering habits the rubber plant will grow quickly, often doubling in size within a year.
