About Rob

If you're completely new to houseplants then Rob is a brilliant first plant to adopt, not only is he a very handsome lad, he's also very easy to look after and has been approved by NASA as one of the best air purifying plants.

Details

Our Robs come in two sizes:
Plant height: 35-45cm; Nursery pot width: 12cm
Plant height: 90-100cm; Nursery pot width: 27cm

Our large Rob fits perfectly in our new 30cm plant stand!

Health Benefits

NASA carried out a survey to better understand which houseplants would help clean the air in their space station and our Robin made the cut.

Likes

Prefers being placed in a brightly lit room with no direct light although he won't mind a few hours in the morning or afternoon.

Dislikes

Being over-watered - a sign of this will be leaves falling off.

Looking after this plant

Water moderately in the spring and summer months - about once every 5-7 days and once every 10-14 days in the autumn and winter. Water enough to thoroughly wet the compost but allow the top inch of compost to dry out between waterings. Here's our guide on how to best water your plants.

Living with pets and children

Rob is toxic if ingested.

Free shipping on Christmas trees as well as any orders over £50
