Rubber Ruby Red, scientifically known as Ficus elastica 'Ruby,' is a striking cultivar of the traditional Rubber Plant. Its leaves display a vivid blend of green, pink, and maroon hues, giving the plant a truly vibrant appearance. The foliage is large and glossy, adding a touch of elegance to any room. As it matures, the plant can reach impressive heights, making it a perfect choice for those looking to make a statement with their indoor plants.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

They are very easy to take care of, the secret is to not overwater them and pay attention to abnormal signs like curling or falling leaves. Also, ensure they are receiving adequate light. Water more frequently during warmer months and fertilize during growth.

Care Guide

How to take care of Rubber Ruby Red

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, as it is too intense for them. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is fine and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will thrive in bright light, but also can tolerate medium light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They like the soil to be relatively dry before the next watering. That usually takes about two weeks in an average home environment. It may vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. droopy, floppy, or soft leaves). Water more often in the warmer months.

They can live in any average home humidity condition and are fairly hardy. Try to avoid letting water sit on their leaves for too long as this can lead to rot.

This plant is moderately toxic and can cause some adverse reactions when ingested so it is best to not let your pets eat it, which we advise for all plants in general. The severity of the reaction will depend on how much of the plant is ingested but, if you know your pet typically does not eat your plants, this plant will be suitable for your home.
