The Ficus Elastica Abidjan is also known as a rubber plant. This is because its deep, dark-green leaves used to be used for the extraction of rubber. The rubber plant has a strong air-purifying effect and requires little care, making it hugely popular as a houseplant. It’ll even survive in a corner with minimal daylight. The Ficus Elastica Abidjan does have a few demands: do not place it in direct sunlight or in a windy spot. Furthermore, make sure that the potting soil has dried up a but, before watering it again. It’s better to give the Ficus Elastica too little water, as opposed to overwatering it. Overwatering could cause the roots to rot. Do the leaves turn yellow? This may indicate you’ve either given too much or too little water, but it also happens to older leaves. In the latter case there is nothing to worry about. Are you unsure about the cause? Then please don’t hesitate to contact us!

Plants and health:
In order for your house to become a home – a place where you can truly unwind – we believe the addition of plants to be indispensable. Plants are much more than just a nice addition to your interior; they actively break down harmful substances and turn CO₂ into oxygen. Because we believe that everyone is entitled to a beautiful and healthy living environment, we are happy to share our green must-haves with you!
Will my plants be potted before delivery?
If you purchase a plant-pot combination, they will be delivered separately. Potting our plants is very easy! You can repot a plant from the plastic growers’ pot into the pot. You might add a layer of hydro grains, which will allow room for excess water to drain. If the pot is large enough, you could also simply place the plant with the growers’ pot in it. Is the growers’ pot a bit higher than the pot? That’s an easy fix. The growers’ pot is easily removed, after which you can press down the soil a bit. Wondering you have to do the potting yourself? Well, by delivering the pot and plant separately, we can pack both extra carefully. This way, we ensure they are both delivered in a perfect condition.
Our plants are delivered fresh from the grower. They make a quick pit stop at our distribution centre, where they are carefully packaged in a plant-friendly box. After packaging, your plants are sent straight to your home!
Because plants are living products, they are never exactly identical to the pictures shown on our website. Height measurements and shapes may differ due to weather conditions, for example.
