Description

A very popular house plant, and with good reason! A member of the fig tree family, this stunning rubber plant grows large stiff leaves from a central stem tipped with a pink spike. Its almost impossible to miss this stylish plant from the pages of design magazines.

The robusta verity (as it sounds) is much more hardy than its lyrata cousin and will happy in any bright room, out of direct sunlight.  Water once the soil on the top of the pot drys out, but do not allow to sit in water, does not like wet feet.
