Ficus Elastica Burgundy - 4" pot

Size Chart
Regular price $21.00

A classic beauty! The deep burgundy foliage starts out as a bright red spike from the middle of the plant and then grows quickly into a thick, waxy perfect leaf. Better yet, this is one the easiest plants to care for and one of the most rewarding for its speedy growth.

Its happy place is a bright spot with indirect light but will tolerate lower light conditions.

Allow the soil to dry out down about 2” before watering. Give those thick, glossy leaves a wipe down with a damp cloth about once a week, not only are you keeping them shiny and pretty, removing the dust aids in photosynthesis. Loves a humid environment. 

Ficus Elastica Burgundy comes in a 4" plastic growers pot, plant height around 8" from the base of the pot.

Care Level: Mostly easy
Lighting : Bright, indirect, can handle low
Water: Top 2" dry out between waterings
Pets: Not pet friendly

Ficus Overview

Native to the tropics, including Asia, America and Africa, the Ficus belongs to the fig genus with hundreds of Ficus species out there. A mainstay in many offices and homes because they look like a typical tree with a trunk and canopy, the Ficus is also commonly called the Ficus Tree, Weeping Fig and Fig Tree – yes, the latter being the one that produces the fruit. Regardless of their size, they’ll always maintain their ‘tree-like’ appearance with dark and/or variegated foliage. Ficuses add a splash of colour and lushness to any home, but you’ll want to be mindful when you’re shopping for Ficuses since they have a reputation for being finnicky house plants. They shed leaves at the very first sign of stress, which can be very off-putting for someone who doesn’t like to break out their broom and dustpan too often.

Super tiny

I was expecting it to be bigger but what I received is really a baby version. It is still gorgeous though and so far it looks like it is growing fine. I hope I could grow it and it would be come this plant with big rubbery leaves. Thank you.
