Ruby Ficus: Overview

The Ruby Rubber Plant, scientifically known as Ficus robusta “Ruby”, is a stunning addition to any indoor space. Belonging to the family Moraceae, this popular indoor plant is native to Southeast Asia. With its vibrant ruby-colored leaves, it adds a pop of color to your home decor. Ideal for hardy plant zones 10-12, it thrives in warm, humid conditions. Known for its longevity and large size, it can grow up to several feet tall indoors.

While it enjoys bright, indirect sunlight, it can tolerate lower light conditions, making it suitable for various environments. As with other rubber plants, it’s relatively easy to care for and can make a striking statement piece in your home.

The Ficus Ruby Rubber plant symbolizes abundance, prosperity, and growth. Its lush foliage and vibrant color bring a sense of vitality, making it an excellent addition to spaces where you seek to promote positivity and well-being.

While ficus plants are a beautiful and beneficial addition to your indoor space, it’s important to note that they are toxic to pets if ingested. Keep it out of reach of curious pets to ensure their safety.

Ruby Ficus Elastica: Care Guide

Ruby Ficus Elastica, commonly known as the Ruby Rubber Plant, is a relatively low-maintenance plant, suitable for beginners and experienced plant enthusiasts alike.

Watering and Light Requirements

Ensure the soil remains consistently moist but not soggy, allowing the top inch to dry out between waterings. Place in bright, indirect light, avoiding direct sunlight that can scorch its leaves. 

Temperature and Humidity

Keep your Ruby Rubber tree plant in a warm environment with temperatures between  65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C). It thrives in moderate to high humidity therefore, occasional misting will benefit your plant. 

Soil, Repotting, and Feeding

Plant your Ruby Rubber tree in well-draining soil, such as a mixture of potting soil and perlite. Repot every 2-3 years or when the roots outgrow the pot. Feed monthly during the growing season with a balanced liquid fertilizer. 

Propagation

Propagate your Ruby Rubber plant by using healthy stem cuttings. Dip them in rooting hormone and plant them in small pots with fresh soil. Keep the new plants in a spot with bright, indirect light. Roots should develop within 6-8 weeks. Newly propagated Ruby rubber plants will make the perfect gift that attracts abundance and happiness.

Pruning and Maintenance

Regularly prune to maintain its desired shape and remove any yellowing or damaged leaves. Wipe leaves gently with a damp cloth to remove dust, allowing the plant to breathe freely. Watch for signs of pests like spider mites and treat them promptly if detected.

    Prefectlly packed! Very pretty and

    Prefectlly packed! Very pretty and very healthy plant, I think I got M size plant and it actually has one larger and 2 smaller plants in a pot! Looks very bushy and recovered well after transportation, after a week I did repot it and it already opened new little leave. In general if I would even think to compare Lively root to general store condition plants, lively root being a bit more expensive but plants are very healthy and you can see they are grown with a lot of care as leaves on them are perfect! While getting a plant from regular store is always a rescue mission XD.
