The Ficus Elastica, or Rubber Plant, is one of the most well-known house plants out there. That being said, Freddie, a Ficus Elastica Robusta, is a modern variety that’s very similar to the original, only with bigger leaves and more shine!

 

You may be familiar with Freddie’s brothers, Felix the Ficus Abidjan, 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.

Freddie, Ficus Elastica Robusta - Small

£6.00Price
  • Freddie 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

Placement

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

Water

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.

Feed

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