Ficus elastica 'Burgundy' - Rubber Tree
Ficus elastica 'Burgundy' has leaves that emerge crimson and then fade to a shade of green so deep that appears nearly black. Native to South Asia, Ficus elastica is a member of the fig genus. Its milky sap was originally used to make latex, which is why this plant is often called the Rubber Tree. Its dramatic, glossy foliage make the 'Burgundy' cultivar a favorite indoor tree for modern, minimalist interiors.
• Light: Provide bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: Ficus can be finicky plants, and tend to drop leaves when stressed. Avoid moving your plant once positioned
