4" Ficus Ruby

$12.99
Care

 Bright indirect light

 Allow soil to dry almost completely

 

Ficus ruby has stunning pink variegated foliage with hints of cream, green and white throughout the leaf.

Ficus ruby are similar to Ficus tineke, but the leaf margins stay pink after the leaves mature.

Ficus care is relatively simple.  Most Ficus plants prefer bright indirect light.  Make sure your plant is in a well draining soil rich in organic matter and allow it to dry out almost completely between watering.  Take care not to place your Ficus near a cold window or near a heat or air vent.

Fun fact:  The scientific name for Ficus ruby is Ficus elastica and they are commonly referred to as a "Rubber tree"!

She is looking fine!

This was my first order and I was skeptical as to what the quality would be. This little plant changed all that. It arrived packaged very well. I unwrapped it and it looked a little sad but healthy with new growth. I waited a week to repot it and now it seems very happy. It has sprouted a new leaf and another is growing. I am very happy with this plant.

A nice tall plant!

I was expecting something small in a 4" pot, but this Ruby is a good 12" tall and well-developed! Super happy with this purchase.

4 inch pot

I purchased a ficus from my wishlist for such a great price from this website along with a few other plants as well. I was happy with it being so small bc I'm limited on space at the moment but wanted this little tree to grow with me in life. To my surprise when I opened the package it was a bit larger than I expected but I wasn't mad at that either. I received every one of the 5 plants I ordered in the same box and no dirt spilled out anywhere. Plus I love how they use they packing peanuts that you can dissolve in your sink, my kids just think those are the coolest thing ever. I see some in the comments complaint about packaging waste but I had to mention they use those kinds of packing materials that are better for our environment. 👍 All of my plants are healthy and have been thriving, especially the beautiful ficus I purchased. If you're interested and reading this as well, I recommend you purchase from here as well. I even sent plants to my 2 sisters who live in 2 different states to introduce them to this awesome website bc I knew just mentioning someone and sending a link was not enough. They're both hooked now too!
