Owning a Rubber Plant is all about the retro-chic of broad, shiny leaves. Ficus elastica Robusta is a modern variety that is very close to the original species in appearance, but with leaves that are wider and more glossy.
Being one of the best air-filtering plants available, and low-maintenance too, Robusta is a great plant to add lush, tropical foliage to your interior spaces.
Leaf got you down? Using a sterile sharp blade, put a shallow cut slightly above the leaf node (where the leaf was). Before you know it, new growth will fill in the blanks.
Insufficient light can trigger leaf drop! Find a more suitable location and your plant should quickly recover.
Sticky latex will ooze from the ends of cut stems! This can be an irritant, so make sure to wash your hands afterwards.
