Plant BioFicus Elastica, Ficus Robusta
Named after the white latex that courses through its veins and which was once used to make rubber, the Rubber Tree ‘Abidjan’ originates from Indochina, through Southeast Asia to Indonesia. Characterised by gorgeous thick, glossy leaves you will be sure to make a statement with this houseplant. His upright, burgundy leaves unfurl with a red outer leaf... which is very pleasing and beautiful to watch. This plant is a household favourite and great for those interior-design led minds. Fun planty fact: In some parts of India the rubber tree’s incredibly sturdy roots have been used to make ‘living bridges’ to allow crossings over small rivers.
