Rubber Plants are quintessential houseplants, popular for decades and quite rightly still on trend today. They are easy to care for and make a sculptural statement in the right location. Ficus elastica Melany’s luscious foliage is a deep, glossy green with a glamorous hint of burgundy. The dense, compact growth habit results in more air-filtering leaves.
A little water a day keeps brown leaves away! Water this Ficus little and often to prevent over/underwatering and ultimately leaf drop.
Insufficient light can also trigger leaf drop! Find a more suitable location and your plant should quickly recover.
A little off the top! Trim to maintain your Ficus' desired shape, but be aware that sticky latex will ooze from the ends of the cut stems! This can be an irritant, so make sure to wash your hands afterwards.
