    About Ficus Burgundy (Ficus elastica)

    Care Instructions

    Light Requirements:

    Ficus Burgundy thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight but be cautious of intense afternoon sun, which can scorch its leaves. An east or west-facing window is ideal.

    Water Requirements:

    Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry. Be mindful not to overwater, as Ficus Burgundy is susceptible to root rot. Ensure the pot has proper drainage to avoid waterlogging. Reduce watering in the winter months.

    Soil Requirements:

    Use a well-draining potting mix. A mix designed for indoor plants or a blend of potting soil with perlite and peat moss works well.

    Humidity:

    Ficus Burgundy prefers moderate humidity levels. Regular misting or placing a humidifier nearby can help maintain the necessary humidity, especially in dry indoor conditions.

    Pro Tip

    Ficus Burgundy can be sensitive to changes in environment and may drop leaves if moved or exposed to drafts. Try to keep it in a stable location with consistent care.
