I used to live at my dad's house before I moved to Sweden. I left a bunch of plants at his house because well I couldn't take them with me. He has a bunch of cacti and succulents on the patio, which is perfect since California has been suffering a drought the last few years (until recently there has been flooding). He also has one real house plant! The rest are plastic from Ikea . He regularly sends me pictures of the real house plant, to show me how good he is at keeping it alive.
So here is his Rubber Plant, or Ficus Elastica (Fönster Fikus på svenska).
He says it loves the indirect sun coming through the sliding door, and he waters it once a week.
I really like this plant, but I haven't been able to find one here in Sweden even though its a really common house plant.
I think it needs to be repotted, what do you guys think?
