If you’re looking for a colorful plant to brighten up your space then Ficus elastica ‘Ruby’ is the plant for you! Featuring thick waxy leaves with shades of deep reds, pinks, creams, and greens, few other plants are as striking as this one. Ficus elastica ‘Ruby’ does require higher light levels to continue to produce maximum coloration.
~Although drought tolerant, do not allow your Ficus to dry out too much. In general, Ficus should be kept slightly moist during the growing season. Water when the top 2" of soil are dry. They do not like wet feet, so if 30 minutes after watering you see water in the saucer, pour it away.
~ Ficus prefer medium to bright light & can even be acclimated to grow in full sun. Do not place in low light areas.
~Do Not place in drafty areas or under/near an air vent. Unless temperature & humidity are high, drafts or cold air may cause Ficus to drop their lower leaves.
