Ficus elastica: “Melany” Rubber Tree in 10" Nursery Pot
The Rubber Plant, or Ficus Elastica, is a beloved staple of indoor plants. It also happens to be the easiest Ficus to care for! With immediately recognizable thick and glossy “rubber” leaves, these hardy and resilient plants grow in a variety of colours. The Ficus Melany sports a unique, bronze-y hue, and is trained to grow in a sleek Tree style, as opposed to the typical bush.
Light: Medium light is ideal. It will grow faster in bright rooms, but too much direct sun will burn the leaves.
Water: Water sparingly, about once a month in the winter and as often as every 2 weeks in the spring./summer.
Humidity: Normal humidity works so don't put it directly in front of a vent, but it also won't complain if you don't have a big humidifier beside it.
