Simple, Resilient Growth Indoors

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.

Why is Better

Aside from our few tips for care, the Rubber Plant is one of the easiest house plants to grow. Known as the ultimate starter plant because of its low-maintenance and simplistic nature, it gives confidence to first-time growers. It's able to handle a decent amount of neglect and prefers to dry out between waterings.

And the best part is that we've planted and grown our Rubber Plant for best results from day one, so now you get easy success in your homescape. We've done the work so that you get a proven performer.

Covering all bases as a must-have house plant, the Rubber Plant (Ficus), or Burgundy Bush, is a prime pick. Order your own today!

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.

Rubber tree had a few broken leaves when he arrived in the mail. I planted it into a bigger pot right away and gave it water. I have had it for only a month but it is already getting more leaves. Rubber Plant (Ficus) Rubber Plant (Ficus) Rubber Plant (Ficus) Review

We're so glad it has recovered beautifully!

She’s cute, but buy leaf shine

Cute plant, had to wait longer than 1-2 for shipping which bummed me out- thankfully my husband was home that day to take it inside (delivered on a really cold day). However, the leaves have white spots ALL over it. I wish they would clean the leaves before sending or include instructions on how to clean them.


We ship out orders within 1-2 business days, but the time spent in transit is going to depend on where you are at in relation to our nursery. We apologize for the inconvenience! The white spots you are seeing are calcium deposits from the watering system in our nursery. It's harmless to the plants but we'll reach out with some instructions for cleaning it off!

Great plant, dirty

Really great and healthy plant, the leaves seem like they've been sprayed with dirty water over and over, I cant seem to get them clean


Hi Patrick! This is a calcium deposit from our watering system, we apologize for the inconvenience. It is not harmful. We recommend spraying the leaves with a mild soap and water mix and allowing it sit for a few minutes and it should wipe off. If you have additional questions/concerns, please reach out!
