Ficus Elastica Burgundy is a popular, robust, evergreen, ornamental plant with shiny burgundy leaves and distinctly pink new growth. Not only hardy and low maintenance this plant will remove chemical toxins from the air, like formaldehyde. An indoor favourite but also ideal as a potted specimen plant for patios and verandahs. Be sure to clean the leaves of your Ficus Elastica so it can breathe easier, but don’t use any kind of leaf shine on it. Water your rubber tree when the soil is slightly dry to the touch. Watering too frequently may cause leaf yellowing.
