Reviews & Questions

Here's Everything You Need To Know

What options are there?

The Rubber plant is available as a 68cm plant. It features big glossy green leaves and vivid red tips. The plant will arrive securely potted into a plain black starter pot which can be re-potted into a small or medium sized plant pot (18cm – 22cm diameter). All of our plants are made by hand so the exact measurements will vary slightly. You can normally adjust the overall width by tweaking the foliage. The height can be increased slightly by pre-filling a decorative planter before adding the Rubber plant.

Will you be able to tell it’s not real?

The artificial Rubber plant has large glossy green leaves just like its natural sibling. The foliage is manufactured from premium durable plastic which is supported by a semi-rigid plastic frame. This ensures the plant will hold its shape and last for as long as possible in your home.

While the Rubber plant may appear slightly artificial, it does a really good job of mirroring a natural rubber plants appearance and texture. That said, if you would prefer a slightly softer leaf type we recommend buying the Rubber tree.


Where should you put it?

The Rubber plant is designed for indoor use. Standing at around 70cm high, it’s the ideal plant for adding a splash of greenery to your home. It has a stylish appearance, so we suggest using the Rubber plant in modern interior décor. Place it on a kitchen shelf, next to the telly or in your office. Alternatively, plant it into a taller pot to create more of a statement.

When the Rubber plant arrives, this is what you need to do:

  1. Unpack
  2. We will send your Rubber plant safely and securely in a strong cardboard box. The plant and travel pot may have some additional wrapping to keep it secure in transit. First remove all of the packaging and, if possible, recycle it. If the plant is damaged please let us know as soon as you can.

  3. Arrange
  4. You will find that the leaves on the Rubber plant are pushed upwards when you remove it from the box. This is to reduce the risk that they get squashed or bent in transit to you. Spend a minute or two gently pushing the leaves down so that they are in a more natural position.Use our product image as a rough example of the look you can achieve. For more information, please watch our short how to arrange faux plants guide here.

  5. Add finishing touches
  6. Finally we suggest replanting the basic starter pot into something a little more decorative. This will increase the plants stability and help it blend into your existing home décor. Choose a small to medium planter from our range here. Replanting the artificial Rubber plant is easy and should only take a couple of minutes. Place the plant into the pot, fill around the starter pot with earth and then cover with decorative stones, chipping or slate. If you need some more information, watch our short video potting guide here.

What about ongoing maintenance?

The artificial Rubber plant is a low maintenance dream. Once the plant has been arranged and potted, all it will need is a regular dust or wipe to remove any dirt or debris. The Rubber plant leaves have a natural sheen, so this regular task is particularly important with this product.

Did you know?

The Rubber plant is botanically named Ficus elastic and is actually a member of the fig genus. If successfully pollinated they can produce a small inedible yellow fruit. In rural India the aerial roots from Rubber plants are sometimes trained over streams and rivers to create a natural bridge.

Looking for something else?

If you’re looking for a larger version of the Rubber plant, we have a slightly larger Rubber tree which is available in 105cm and 145cm sizes. Its foliage is slightly less glossy than the rubber plant, however it is still an excellent replica of the real thing.

Alternatively we have a range of other small artificial plants here.
