Definitely Not Another Boring Ficus

The Ficus elastica species is native to Southeast Asia and is commonly referred to as the Rubber Tree due to its historic use in the production of rubber. It has been cultivated for ornamental purposes since the late 1800s and is a popular houseplant due to its attractive glossy leaves and adaptability to a range of different environments.

The development of the Ruby Ficus is a testament to the ongoing efforts of plant enthusiasts and breeders to create new and unique varieties of plants that can bring beauty and joy to people’s lives. Its striking and unique appearance has made it a popular choice among plant lovers and interior designers looking for a bold and dramatic addition to their home or office.

Caring for your Indian Rubber Tree

The Indian Rubber Tree is a popular indoor plant that is valued for its attractive, glossy leaves and relatively easy care requirements. Here are some tips for caring for an Indian Rubber Tree:


The Indian Rubber Tree prefers bright, indirect light, but it can also tolerate lower light levels. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.


The plant prefers consistently moist soil, but it should not be waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering it again.


The Indian Rubber Tree prefers higher humidity levels, so mist the leaves regularly or place the plant on a tray filled with pebbles and water.


Fertilize the plant during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced fertilizer every two weeks.


Prune the plant to maintain its shape and size, and remove any dead or yellow leaves.


Keep an eye out for pests such as spider mites and mealybugs and treat them promptly with an insecticidal soap or neem oil.

    Arrived healthy and soil was still moist. Just looks a bit gangly, not so much like the pics online, but hopefully it’ll fill out with TLC
