Ficus Elastica Burgundy is hardy as hell and great for beginners. This plant is still young and in a 140mm pot. If you have already started building your urban jungle, the rich, wavy leaves will offer a beautiful contrast. If you would like a bushy version of this plant some seasonal pruning will create branches - otherwise it will shoot straight up in no time!
A good option for your home office. They are very efficient air purifiers which will help keep you focused and feeling clear headed.
LIGHT - Indirect and bright
WATER - keep soil moist
AIR PURIFICATION - HIGH
PETS/KIDS - Safe for kids but the sap is messy if they break the leaves, best to keep it out of reach. This plant is not recommended if you have pets.
PICK YOUR POT
Included with your plant is the choice of decorative pot, you can pick from Minimalist Cement or Italian Terracotta. Or upgrade to Greenpoint Club’s exclusive, the Conifer planter. Conifer products are made from 100% plant-based material, 3D printed and completely biodegradable. Conifer ensure this product is completely carbon neutral by purchasing extra credits to offset shipping.
Regardless of pot selected, each plant will be transferred into fresh potting mix. Some plants will be in a nursery pot placed in the decorative, some will have a drainage hole and some will not. Do not worry! If there isn’t a hole we have lined the base with either lava rock or clay pebbles, this helps reducing risk of root rot.
