Plant Details

The Ficus Elastica Ruby displays beautiful, tri-colored varigation with shades of green, pink and white. The leaves are a subtle way to bring a pop of color into a space, and go great with anything mauve and terracotta. It is a high light plant that will appreciate evenly moist soil, although it likes to dry out between waterings.

With diligent care, patience and fertilizer, this gem can grow into a fully formed tree, or be pruned back to keep its small stature.

Product Overview

  • Light Requirements

    This is a high light plant. It will do best close to a south or west facing window, or directly against a north or east facing window.

    Please note that obstructions can cause a considerable decrease in the available light. Windows facing other buildings or alleys, especially on the bottom floors, are particularly susceptible.

    The surest way to see if your space receives the light required for a potted plant is to take a light meter reading. Please see our Lighting Guide for instructions.

  • Plant Care

    CARE LEVEL
    Moderate.

    LIGHT REQUIREMENTS
    Prefers bright indirect light, but is adaptable to medium light conditions.

    WATER REQUIREMENTS
    Be sure to water your plant upon delivery. Rubber plants prefer moderately moist soil. A thorough watering when the top 1" - 2" of the soil are dry is ideal. This plant is sensitive to overwatering and susceptible to root rot.

    HUMIDITY PREFERENCE
    Medium humidity. Place your plant away from hot or cold air drafts.  This plant appreciates a gentle misting: the leaves are dust collectors, and misting will help keep the leaves clean.
