Ficus Elastica Ruby Care Guide

Light Requirements:

Ficus’ do well in medium to bright light so there are number of spots in the house where they can grow.  As long as it doesn’t get direct sunlight then it will be fine. 

Watering needs:

They can go slight underwatered, but best to always keep the potting evenly moist, but not soaking wet. Keep an eye in the summer and in very hot temperatures as they will try out a lot quickler. 

Humidity requirements:

They can tolerate normal humidity in the house, but they do prefer a higher humidity, so they will appreciate a misting whenever you have a chance.

Fertilizing:

As with all plants, fertilizing is very important. These guys will enjoy being fertlized at least every two weeks with a general liquid fertlizer, or a water soluble fertlizer like Grobest

Soil:

These plants generally don’t need to be repotted out quite often. They require a well draining soil mixture that has good moisture retention.
Try and only use a premium potting mix such as the Barks unlimited Indoor potting mix and but also add in Perlite that will assist with good drainage, plus peat moss and coir husks that will hold in some moisture.
