Dive into the realm of the striking Ficus Elastica 'Burgundy', popularly known as the Burgundy Rubber Plant or Indian Rubber Tree. This majestic plant is admired for its broad, glossy leaves that unfurl in deep, rich burgundy tones, bringing a touch of opulence and tropical flair to any space.

How to Grow

The Burgundy Rubber Plant flourishes in bright, indirect light but is adaptable enough to tolerate some shade. While it prefers a well-draining potting mix, it's also crucial that the chosen container has adequate drainage holes. It's best suited for indoor growth but can be grown outdoors in USDA zones 10-12.

Care Tips

Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry, reducing frequency in the winter months. While it can handle some drought, it's essential not to let the soil dry out completely. To maintain the luster of its leaves, occasionally wipe them with a damp cloth to remove dust and boost humidity, especially if the indoor air is dry.


The Ficus Elastica 'Burgundy' serves as a bold statement piece in living rooms, offices, or spacious hallways. Its dramatic foliage and vertical growth make it a natural choice for modern, minimalist, or tropical decor themes.

Planting Tips

When potting, select a container with sufficient drainage. Consider using a potting mix designed for houseplants or a mix enriched with perlite for added drainage. If planting outdoors, choose a sheltered spot with dappled sunlight and protect it from strong winds or frost.


To promote even growth, rotate the plant every few weeks towards the light source. Prune away any yellow or damaged leaves or stems to encourage new, healthy growth and maintain its visual appeal.
