ABOUT FICUS BURGUNDY
The Ficus Burgundy is a formal variety of Ficus Elastica with stunning darker green, reddish, or near black leaves accented by reddish stems. More commonly known as a Rubber Plant, or Rubber Tree, the Ficus Burgundy is a beautiful plant for the home or office.

Bright and filtered light is ideal for Ficus Burgundy, such as near a window with sheer curtains. Misting your plant regularly is also ideal and helps keep mites and other damaging insects at bay.
Overwatering is the enemy of your Ficus. Only water when the top 50%-75% of your soil is dry. Also, it’s important to avoid splashing water on the leaves as it can cause staining.
Ficus helps to remove pollutants from the air according to the NASA clean air study, such as formaldehyde as well as carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide.
LOOKING AFTER THE PLANT
Keep your Ficus Burgundy near bright filtered light sources, ideally near a window, so your plant's leaves stay its beautiful dark color. Water only when the topsoil becomes 50% dry and water until the excess drains into the sauce. Empty your plant drainage tray so as not to drown the roots. You should avoid keeping your Ficus Burgundy in areas that catch cold drafts. Mist regularly, and your Ficus will thrive. Once your plant is at the height you want, cut the top of the plant off, prune, and trim to create your ideal full shape.
