Plant Care

Light: Provide bright, indirect sunlight for your Ficus elastica 'Burgundy.' It can tolerate lower light conditions but thrives in medium to bright indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.


Temperature: Maintain a consistent room temperature between 65-75°F (18-24°C). Avoid exposure to cold drafts and temperature fluctuations.


Watering: Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil to dry out between waterings. Water your Rubber Plant thoroughly, ensuring that excess water drains from the pot. Empty the saucer beneath the pot to prevent waterlogged soil, which can lead to root rot. Reduce watering during the winter months when growth slows.


Humidity: Ficus elastica 'Burgundy' appreciates moderate to high humidity. If the air is dry, consider misting the plant regularly or using a humidity tray to maintain humidity levels.


Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix. A blend of potting soil, perlite, and peat moss or a mix formulated for houseplants works well.


Fertilization: Feed your Rubber Plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the dormant season (fall and winter).


Pruning: Prune your plant to remove any leggy or dead growth to maintain its shape and promote healthy growth.


Repotting: Repot your Ficus elastica 'Burgundy' when it becomes root-bound or outgrows its container, typically every 2-3 years. Choose a slightly larger pot with proper drainage.


Pests: Keep an eye out for common indoor plant pests like spider mites and mealybugs. Inspect your plant regularly and treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
