Have you ever seen a rubber plant with dark green leaves, tinged with burgundy? Ficus 'Abidjan' is that beautiful beast!

Everybody recognises a rubber plant, but you might not have seen this unusual one before. This particular variety is highly unusual. It is called Ficus elastica 'Abidjan' and its leaves are dark - almost tinged with burgundy. They lose none of their air-purifying qualities, however, as this is one of the most effective plants for filtering the air.

  • It absorbs toxins and is therefore a great plant for improving the environment in both homes and offices.
  • Ficus elastica 'Abidjan' is very easy to look after. Can withstand a certain amount of neglect!
  • Likes medium light levels but can even tolerate a shady corner.
  • Keep out of direct sunlight
  • The plant can be pruned in order to fit the space you have for it. It produces a white, sticky, milky sap when cut. Hence the name 'rubber plant'. This is slightly toxic, so do not ingest.
  • Sold in a 17cm pot.
  • Please note that every plant is different and the photograph is provided as a guide only.
  • The plants measure approximtely 55cm in height - this includes the pot.
