80-90cm Triple Stem Rubber Plant 'Melany' | Ficus elastica | 21cm Pot
Triple Stem Rubber Plant 'Melany' | Ficus elastica | 21cm Pot | By Plant Theory
The rubber tree plant is an impressive variety for any plant collection. It's also easy to care for, so it's a great house plant for beginners. This variety features a more traditional tree habit with a bare trunk and an explosion of leaves creating the top. Called a tree for good reason, outside in their natural environment these plants can grow to over 100 feet tall with 6 feet wide trunks! Thankfully they won't reach these heights when potted indoors but you'll love their large beautiful glossy leaves which you can only get from a smaller plant. New growth is a thrill to watch as leaves emerge in sheaths which are eventually dropped as the leaf unfurls. NASA has also rated the rubber tree plant as one of the best plants for purifying the air.
Fill a bright room with a mixture of Ficus varieties to create a tropical oasis!

Show off your plant in style
Please note, all of our house plants arrive in a nursery pot as standard. You can find a more permanent home for your plant in our wide range of indoor plant pots.
Your plant will be happy in a well-lit location. With most houseplants, it is best to avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch their leaves. We believe that a little way back from a window in a bright room is optimum.
The foliage of your plant may become a little dusty, so just wipe them down with a damp cloth occasionally (try not to come into direct contact with the plant).
