Key attributes

A gorgeous glossy green leaf plant that can be trained to grow up a totem or hang over the edges of a pot. Naturally this plant loves to grow laterally and in a horizontal manner which makes it a fascinating addition to your indoor plant collection.

  • Medium light. Can tolerate shade.
  • Water sparingly, soil to be almost dry.
  • Pet friendly.

Your new Baby Rubber Plant comes in three sizes and could grow up to approximately 30cm in height and slightly taller if wrapped onto one of our totems.

Small: 5cm-10cm in height. Planted in a 118mm black nursery pot.

Medium: 15cm-30cm in height. Planted in a 140mm black nursery pot.

Large: 30cm-40cm in height. Planted in a 200mm black nursery pot on a totem.

Please note our decorative pots are sold separately.

Care mode

Water regularly leaving the soil to dry out in between waterings. Because the Baby Rubber Plant has thick, succulent-like leaves it can easily withstand some neglect. Fertilise in warmer months.

Feeding your indoor plants

To get the best out of your indoor plants, you will need to feed them some food. The Good Plant Co Indoor Plant Food will provide all the nutrients they need to grow more leaves and help them stay strong. When the plant is actively growing during the warmer months, it needs a bit more food and water. During the slow growing season (cooler winter months) your plant doesn’t eat or drink as much (no extra winter layer of fat for these babies). Sometimes it’s ok to be a helicopter parent – respond to your plant’s needs. To keep the dust off your beautiful indoor plant leaves use The Good Plant Co Leaf Shine. Moral of the story, if it is growing new leaves then it will need more water and food!

We take great care in growing, packaging, and shipping your new plants so they’re ready to thrive in your home. This includes keeping them safe while they travel from our wholesale nursery to your doorstep.
