Ficus – Burgundy Bush
The rubber plant (Ficus elastica) is a popular ornamental plant from the Ficus genus. For the indoor grower looking for a tree type plant species with attractive foliage which can grow from 1ft to over 8ft tall, this is an excellent choice.
Light: A nice brightly lit spot is ideal, without direct sunlight. Will tolerate lower light levels if kept drier
Watering: Water once the soil becomes slightly dry to the touch and make sure the pot has sufficient drainage holes to allow excess water to seep through. The worst thing you can do regarding watering is “give it too much”.
Fertilizer: Feed during spring and summer with a diluted liquid fertilizer every two weeks like Jacks Houseplant Special
Pruning: Once the rubber plant has grown to the height you want it to grow up to, you can cut the top off. You may also want to prune back any unwanted branches to give the plant a fuller shape. It’s best to prune in spring or summer but any other time will be fine.
