Why Rubber Plants?
Known as the "Burgundy Bush," the Rubber Plant is a stunning, ornamental Ficus that makes an undeniable statement. It lights up any room as a centerpiece or table plant at 1 to 2 feet tall. Let it grow to 3 feet tall for a welcoming addition to an entranceway – or a warm enhancement beside your fireplace!
But unusual and bold foliage is the Rubber Plant's specialty. The Burgundy beauty develops large, 4-inch wide leaves that will extend up to 12 inches in length. Because the most impressive trait of its foliage is each leaf's deep burgundy, chocolate hues and vibrant red midrib, you can add warmth to any living space.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Your Ficus needs lots of indirect, bright light - ensure you place it near a sunny window for best results. When you're ready to plant, select a pot that is approximately one to two times the plant's shipped container and use well-drained soil. Also, make sure your post has proper drainage holes.
2. Watering: Allow the top layer of the soil to dry out completely, and then water deeply until water begins to drain from the holes at the bottom. Repeat this process as needed to ensure your Ficus is hydrated.
3. Fertilizing: It can be beneficial to feed your Ficus a water-soluble fertilizer once in the spring and every month in the summer.
