Hi! My name is Arthur.
Botanists also call me Ficus Binnendijkii Amstel King. I am also part of the giant Ficus family. I am a real eye-catcher with my beautiful long leaves, which vary from red to green. With me, you are sure to make a statement in your home!
Originally I can be found in parts of Asia, Africa, Australia and South America, where I can get huge! You may also have heard of my nickname: the rubber plant. I used to be very important for the production of rubber! Not anymore, I prefer to stand around the house and display my beauty.
Where should you place me?
Put me in a bright place where there is no draft I can feel. This is where I feel best!
What do I like?
Just give me a regular sip of lukewarm water and a little fertilizer once a month. That's what I like!
Plantanious works together with the Work with Nature foundation. Our tropical rainforests are disappearing at a rapid pace and an enormous biodiversity is being lost along with the trees. If it were up to us, the jaguar would soon walk around again in the rainforest in Costa Rica protected by 'Adopt Rainforest'! The place where many of our special plants originate. In order to make an important contribution to the goal of the foundation - to protect 2,000 hectares of rainforest in the next ten years - we donate part of our turnover to protect part of the tropical rainforest. To achieve their goal, the foundation puts money into protection, conservation, reforestation, education and research.
