Ficus elastica 'Ruby'


By Stan510

Ficus elastica 'Ruby' (Ficus elastica  Ruby.)

One of the most colorful cultivars of the rubber plant. I started this when it was in a 3" cup 6 or 7 years ago.

I second that ... it has grown so well for you.

Thank you. Once it fully roots in it will actually be a drought tolerant plant. Already in its second summer in ground I notice it's much more perky then last summer between waterings.

Stan, I'm pretty sure this is treated as a houseplant in the U.K., wrong climate for it to be outdoors here!

Its marginal for here on paper also Shirley,but its done fine the whole time I've had it- so in the ground it went.
