A popular, robust, evergreen, ornamental plant with shiny burgundy leaves and distinctly pink new growth. Not only hardy and low maintenance this plant will remove chemical toxins from the air, like formaldehyde.
An indoor favourite but also ideal as a potted specimen plant for patios and verandahs. Can be placed in a room with filtered light, however it's best to keep it near a large window where it can get bright light to avoid the plant stretching to find any available light source.
Use a damp soft cloth to keep leaves dust free. Avoid moving your plant around unnecessarily as sudden changes of light and temperature can adversely affect your plant. Protect from cold drafts and mist foliage with a trigger sprayer to keep plants looking fresh and increase humidity.
If planting your rubber plant outside, use caution as it will grow into a large canopy tree and can reach upwards of 20metres, so it will need a large and spacious growing position.
