Description

If you love dark foliage, this one is a showstopper! Similar to Ficus elastica 'Robusta' except the 'Abidjan' has darker foliage. The reddish midrib on the leaves, as well as bright red sheathes protecting the new leaves, form a beautiful contrast! Also called the Ficus elastica 'Burgundy' due to the color of the leaves.

Plant comes in a 5″ growers pot. Plant shown is representative of what you will receive.

Harmful To: Pets
Height: 48 – 120 Inches

  • For optimal performance, keep at 60-85°F (15-29°C).
  • Protect furniture when watering.
  • Feed once per month at half strength when plant is actively growing.
  • If you would like a bushier plant, prune your plant to promote branching.  The plant exudes a white, milky sap when pruned or broken, so if your skin comes in contact with it, wash your hands immediately.
  • These are NOT low light plants and need to be right in front of a window for best results. Some direct sun is beneficial (east or west window) and they can even grow in your sunniest window.
  • Allow the top 2-3 inches of soil to dry out before watering again.
  •  

  • Use a well-draining potting mix. Adding perlite and orchid bark will improve drainage.
  • Never allow to sit in standing water.
