Ficus elastica, commonly known as the Rubber Plant, is a popular indoor plant admired for its broad, glossy leaves and robust growth. The leaves are dark green, often with a hint of burgundy, and have a leathery texture that adds a touch of elegance to any indoor space. Ficus elastica is not only attractive but also relatively easy to care for, making it a favorite among both novice and experienced plant enthusiasts.

Plant Care:

  • Lighting: Ficus elastica thrives in bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while too little light can result in slower growth and leggy stems.
  • Watering: Water the Rubber Plant when the top inch of soil feels dry. It prefers consistently moist soil but is susceptible to root rot if overwatered. Ensure the pot has adequate drainage to prevent waterlogging. During the winter months, reduce the watering frequency as the plant's growth slows.
  • Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix, such as a mix formulated for indoor plants. A peat-based mix with added perlite or sand can improve drainage.
  • Pruning: Pruning is generally not necessary for Ficus elastica, but you can trim back any yellowing, damaged, or overly long leaves to maintain the plant's appearance. Regular pruning can also encourage bushier growth and help control the plant's size.
  • Pests: Ficus elastica is generally resistant to pests but can occasionally attract spider mites, mealybugs, or scale. Inspect the plant regularly and treat infestations promptly with insecticide or neem oil.
