6” Ficus Ruby Rubber

The Ficus Ruby Rubber, also known as Ficus elastica 'Ruby,' is a captivating cultivar of the rubber plant, prized for its striking red-toned leaves.

To care for it:

☀️ Provide bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight, which can cause leaf scorching.

💦 Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

🌧️ Maintain moderate humidity levels. Misting the leaves or placing a humidifier nearby can help, especially in dry indoor environments.

🌡️ Keep the plant in a room with temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Avoid sudden temperature fluctuations and drafts.

🪹 Use well-draining, peat-based potting mix to ensure proper aeration and moisture retention.

🥣 Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half-strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce fertilization in fall and winter.

✂️ Trim dead or yellowing leaves to maintain the plant's appearance and health.

🪴Repot every 2-3 years or when the roots outgrow the current pot. Spring is the best time for repotting.

With consistent care, your Ficus Ruby Rubber can thrive and showcase its vibrant foliage in your indoor space.
