Burgundy Rubber Plant, Ficus Elastica, Beginner
The Burgundy Rubber Tree, Ficus elastica, has a special place in our hearts because we own a 10 foot tall one! The leaves are a deep dark green, and sometimes look black from far away. We consider this one of the 'spooky' plants with it's dark foliage. This houseplant is a great beginner one because it's pretty forgiving and easy to grow in different lighting situations.
Light: Medium to bright indirect light
Soil: 1 part peat moss, 1 part perlite, 1 part orchid bark.
Water: Once per week.
Temp: Keep above 65°F
TOXIC. Keep away from pets and children.
99% of the time, you will NOT receive the plant in the image but one that is very similar and the same size. No two plants are identical and that goes for number of leaves, variegation patterns, etc. but I do my best to make sure that if any of them look totally different, to add a new listing. In other words, if you buy a 4" plant that's well established, that's what you're going to get, promise.

All plants are shipped priority mail through USPS.
It is normal for a plant to be stressed with shipping, they can look droopy or even lose some leaves in transit or right after. Please allow 3 days for the plant to perk up.
