The Rubber Plant (Ficus elastica) could be the ideal houseplant for you if you want a tough but easy going indoor plant that can reach staggering heights within just a few years. The shiny glossy leaves look great in most homes and although young plants start off small they will fill the space in an empty corner quickly. It is also very good at purifying the air. In other words it's good for your health as well as low maintenance.
A well lit spot with some indirect sun if possible. The all green types will take some shade and poorly lit spaces, but too much for too long and the plant will become lanky and spindly.
Water well once the soil surface and top inch has dried out, then wait until it dries out in the same way before watering again. Clean the leaves with a damp cloth.
