Robust, glossy leaves make rubber plants a stand-out in any collection. The variegated foliage on this variant looks almost hand-painted, creating a particularly striking appearance. Keep this one happy and it’ll reward you with rapid growth, reaching a mature height of around a metre.

Plant Care

Position / Light:
This species requires plenty of indirect, bright light, although exposure to direct afternoon sunlight is best avoided, particularly during the summer months. If you do want to place this plant outside, make sure it’s in a partly shady spot to avoid sunburn on those big leaves.

Care / Water:
This plant fairs better than most during the occasional dry spell, but ideally you will want to water it generously whenever the top 3- 5cm of soil completely dries out, always allowing excess water to drain freely. When it's time, we recommend pulling it outside (or into the bath or shower), giving it a good drench, then leaving time for all the residual water to drain through. For this reason you should always keep this species in a pot with adequate drainage holes.
