The Ficus Elastica, or Rubber Plant, is one of the most well-known house plants out there. That being said, Bella, a Ficus Elastica Belize, is a rarer member of the family! She has similar green and cream patterns as her cousin, Francis, a Ficus Elastica Tineke, but with the addition of a reddish-pink tinge to her leaves.


As mentioned, you may be familiar with Bella's brothers, Felix the Ficus Abidjan, and Freddie the Ficus Robusta - the whole family are some of the best air-filtering plants available, and low-maintenance too.


Here’s an interesting one for you - in certain parts of India, the rubber tree’s strong roots have been trained to form ‘living bridges’ across small rivers.

Bella, Ficus Elastica Belize - Small

  • Bella prefers bright indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight wouldn’t go a miss.

    If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:

    • Minimal shadow = lower light
    • Half shadow = indirect light
    • Full shadow = direct sun

Plant care basics


Place your plants in a spot where they'll thrive & not just where they'll look good - you won't regret it!


Stick your finger 2 inches into your plants soil, and if it's dry give it a drink - if not, hold off on the water.


Plants get hungry too! In spring & summer feed your plants every 2-4 weeks! Back off during Autumn & Winter.
