Product Details
Ficus elastica

Ficus elastica, also known as India Rubber plant or India Rubber Fig, is native to the tropical rain forests of Malaysia, South America, and India. In its native environment they can grow up to 100ft tall, but for the common house plant its range is usually around one to eight feet in height. The Rubber Tree received its name from the white sap that oozes from its leaves and stems which has been used to produce rubber since the early 1900s. Burgundy is a cultivar of Ficus elastica. This indoor plant has a sturdy, tree-like stem with dark green and burgundy tinted oval leaves which are thicker than other house plants and have a beautiful natural shine.

Rubber plants are quite popular and generally easy to care for, although this variety requires more light than other Ficus trees. To help preserve the rich burgundy and emerald tones, place Ficus Burgundy in brightly lit areas out of direct sunlight. They are happy when kept in moderate temperatures and with slightly moist soil. It’s best to use a well-draining soil and only water once it’s dry to the touch. It’s a slow growing tree that once matured, is a beautiful addition to any room.

Plant Care
light

The Burgundy houseplant grows best with bright, indirect light to keep its rich dark leaf color. That means a few feet away from a bright window, filtered by thin curtains or blinds. Do not expose to direct sunlight or the leaves may "burn."

water

We suggest watering the Burgundy once a week allowing the soil to drain and dry. The Burgundy can tolerate a few missed waterings, however it is less tolerant to over watering which can lead to root rot.

temperature

Plants like the Ficus Burgundy prefer temperatures of 65⁰F to 85F⁰. Avoid sudden temperature drops, or cold drafts as it may cause it to drop a few leaves. Do not expose to temperatures below 39F⁰.

fertilizer

Apply a balanced houseplant fertilizer to your Burgundy at half strength once every 1 - 3 months and watch your Burgundy plant grow.
