Regular price $46.00

We’re more than a little obsessed with the pink-ish red camouflage look of these leaves! Because of the variegation of the colours you will want to give this Ficus Elastica more bright light than you would with some of the other varieties like the Burgundy, bright light helps keep those colours punchy. Avoid direct sun that will scorch the leaves.

Overall the Rubber Plant varieties of Ficus are fairly low maintenance. Keep the soil slightly moist, watering when it is dry down about 2”. Try to avoid splashing water on the leaves as it can leave spots on it. That said, 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 Ruby comes in a in a 7" plastic growers pot, plant height ranges around 28" - 30" 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.
