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 aka Rubber Plant comes in a 10" plastic growers pot, plant height ranges 24" - 26" from the base of the pot.

Care Level: Mostly easy
Lighting : Bright, indirect
Water: When dry 2" or so down, keep moist
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.

So far so good with plant / Chive was great!

I'm giving this plant 5 stars because it arrived so beautiful and healthy - my brown thumb is the only thing that may eventually cause it to be fewer than 5 stars! I have to say though that the service from Chive Studio is always so great - they give you a delivery window and bring it right to your door. Super friendly as well. For non-car-owning condo dwellers like me, this store is a dream. Thank you!
