Rubber Tree (Burgundy)
AKA Ficus elastica burgundy
Researched for years as a potential rubber source, "Rubber Trees" can grow 50 feet in nature, and are among the most tolerant, easy-to-care-for ficus varieties.
LIGHT: While it can tolerate lower light, it does best in medium to bright indirect light. Avoid harsh, direct sun, which can burn the leaves.
WATER: Water when soil becomes dry to the touch, around once a week. Overwatering can cause root rot, so ensure your plant has proper drainage.
INDOORS OR OUTDOORS? Great to keep indoors year round or bring outside when overnight temps are above 40 F degrees.
