Felix, a Ficus Elastica Adibjan or Rubber Plant, is one of the most well-known house plants out there. That being said, Freddie, a Ficus Abidjan, is something slightly different with dark green, almost black, leaves and a bright red stem!


You may be more familiar with Felix’s brothers, Freddie the Ficus Robusta, and Francis the Ficus Tineke - 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.

Felix, Ficus Elastica Abidjan

  • Felix 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
