Big Red the Burgundy Rubber Tree, XL
Bold Colours | Air purifier | Low light
Big Red is native to the rainforests of India and South America but easily adapts to indoor climates. She's known for her broad, deep burgundy leaves that can appear almost black, and is one of our all-time favourites.
Also know as Ficus elastica burgundy, Rubber bush, Rubber tree.
Difficulty Easy - relatively low maintenance.
Water Check soil moisture every 5-10 days and water when the top 50-75% of soil is dry.
Light Grows best in bright, indirect light. Will tolerate low light as well but will take some time to adjust and probably drop leaves at first. The more light she gets, the darker her colour will be and the faster she will grow.
