Black Knight Triple planted - Ficus elastica - 10L / 25cm / Large

$99.99

3x Large Black Knight Ficus elastica in a 10L nursery pot.

The Ficus elastica is often referred to as the Rubber Tree because the sap of this species is the original source of latex, but there's nothing plastic about this tree. The Black Knight Ficus elastica Rubber Tree has striking sturdy black-green leaves and fire engine red growth tips to rival any flower. The ideal low maintenance plant for beginner plant keepers or beyond.


Light Requirements: Bright Indirect Light is ideal, can handle part-day Sun

Moisture & Soil Requirements: Prefers evenly moist soil with good drainage in warm seasons - never soggy soil. Water when the first few centimetres of soil are dry.

Growth & Nutrients: Tree /shrub. Aggressive roots, will fill up nearly any container, keep away from water pipes outside. Prune at the start of spring to the desired shape. Suits medium to large apartments or houses of any size. Feed with a general-purpose fertiliser for containers from the start of spring each year to autumn when growth slows down.

Temperature, Humidity & Ambient requirements: Prefers warm humid environments inside but can deal with most home environments. Grows well outdoors in frost-free northern NZ

Toxicity: Moderately toxic. Don't let anyone or anything eat it. The sap is a skin irritant so do not touch.

Plant Size Guide

The plant in the photos is an example and an approximate guide only however we try to show small examples so you get a pleasant surprise. Sizes, flowering state and colours change throughout the seasons and variation will occur.

Plant Heights - because the plant's foliage must fit inside our Plant Cartons, the actual height of a plant's central trunk (meristem) will be shorter than the box it fits in.

Small Plants - 14cm wide nursery pot - 1 Litre volume - Plants fit in a 50cm tall box.

Medium Plants -  17cm wide pots either 2L hanging pot or 2.5L nursery pot - Plants fit in a 75cm tall box.

Large Plants - 25cm wide pot, 10L volume. Plants fit in a 100cm tall box.

XL Plants - Plants over 100cm tall in pot sizes specified, 25cm/10L or greater and are hand delivered within Auckland/Northland only.

Plants in Transit

Each Small, Medium & Large plant is individually contained within its own protective cardboard Plant Carton which may be joined to other cartons in your order.

Plants typically take just a day or two to arrive, however they are usually fine in their cartons for 1-2 weeks, and many can go longer, so a few extra days are not usually cause for concern.

Whether it takes 1 or 7 days, let your plant recover from its journey by placing in gentle light and adding a little water and it will be back to its best within a couple of days. Let us know if there are any major issues via the contact page.

Going Great!

Ive had my triple planted rubber plant and she is going really well! Super impressed with how quickly it arrived, despite it being lvl 3. Very nice to receive a plant and not have to repot it due to crappy soil/potting medium. Thank you so much Plant House!
