Plant Care – Ficus Elastica Burgundy
Light: Place your Ficus Elastica Burgundy under bright and indirect sunlight, and do avoid direct sunlight because it will cause its leaves to scorch and fall off. The plant can tolerate low light, however, it is not an ideal environment for them to grow in and they will not survive for long.
Water: Water your Ficus thoroughly and make sure that the soil is evenly moist. Water your plant whenever the top inch of the soil is dry to the touch, and make sure to water till some water flows through the pot’s drainage holes. Underwatering will cause its leaves to dry up and drop off.
Soil: Ficus thrives in well-aerated soil that drains water quickly, and therefore should not be placed in soils that are too compacted and heavy, which cause prolonged periods of water retention. And this can lead to root problems, for instance, root rot.
Fertiliser: Fertilise your plant with a balanced fertiliser once a month during its growing season.
Humidity Requirement: Medium To High
