foli8UK Rubber Plant "Abidjan"
High quality, sustainable house plants in a coconut coir pot that is 100% natural, compostable and renewable.
Ficus elastica is the original rubber plant. Elastica obviously means elastic, and refers to the sticky latex that exudes from the plant whenever its stems or leaves are damaged. This was used for the manufacture of soft rubber goods, such as elastic bands and erasers until the south American plant Hevea brasiliensis was introduced to south-east Asia in commercial plantations.
Ficus elastica was first introduced to the UK as a decorative plant in 1815.
