Ficus elastica 'Burgundy' is a stunning indoor plant with glossy leaves that are a rich, wine-black colour.
It's an extremely low maintenance plant that can grow 2m x 1m indoors and up to 20m if planted outside in subtropical gardens.
POSITION It will thrive in a spot with bright, indirect light although it can also handle a little bit of direct morning sun.
REPOTTING Repot in spring - remember to only go up one pot size. If you choose too big a pot, then the excess potting mix retains moisture and can lead to fungal problems and root rot.Use a high quality potting mix with excellent drainage.
After potting, pat the potting mix down to remove any air pockets and water in well using a weak seaweed solution. This will help it settle in quickly and happily.
Pictured here in a 20cm pot, this is the plant size you will receive. It will be shipped potted.
TOXICITY Please note: This plant is listed on the ASPCA website as toxic to cats and dogs.
