Get to Know Burgundy Rubber Plant!

Highlights

A favorite for those who wish to make a bold statement, this Southeast Asian native will immediately draw your eye to its thick, glossy foot-long leathery leaves tinged with deep purple. New growth has shades of pink within the veins, adding brightness and more color.

Watering

It is better to underwater your Rubber Tree than overwater because over-watering causes yellowing leaves and root rot. To help avoid soggy conditions, make sure your Rubber Tree is placed in well-draining soil (add sand or peat to your potting soil). During the growing season, water thoroughly once the top two inches of the soil are dry.

Sunlight

Rubber plants prefer bright, indirect light, but it will tolerate moderate, indirect sunlight. Avoid fully shaded areas.

Pet-Friendly?

No! This plant is toxic if ingested.
