The Ficus elastica can be another #paintedleaftribe mascot. With its lovely, pink-tinged variegation, I am almost convinced that little elves keep this plant painted during the night. It is definitely one that keeps me in awe at nature's wonders. These plants are fairly easy to maintain, once you follow the water and light requirements below. Also, avoid placing these plants in drafty areas.

These plants can get big. In their natural habitat, they can grow to over 100 feet! That won't happen indoor for obvious reasons (ceilings), but they eventually be one of the bigger houseplants you own.ย

These are toxic to pets, so be careful with your furry friends. The sap can also be toxic to humans if in contact with mucous membranes. When pruning the plant, make sure that you wash your hands after and do not touch your eyes and mouth.

Note: Plants are unique! The plant pictured is meant to give you an idea of the specification and quality of the plant you will receive, but will not be an exact replica.

Light Requirements

Bright

This plant thrives in bright indirect sunlight. However, direct light is too intense, and will cause burning. These plants do not like lower light, so give them as much indirect light as possible! Rotate your plant regularly to maintain an even shape.

Water Requirements

Low

Ensure that the plant dries out before your next water. Ficus elastica do not like to be kept wet and are sensitive to overwatering. In the winter months, err on the side of caution and do not water thoroughly. Note: Be sure not to let the plant sit in pooled water as that can cause root rot.
