Ficus Elastica Melany Care

Ficus Elastica Melany (Rubber Plants) are quintessential houseplants, popular for decades and quite rightly still on trend today. They are easy to care for and make a sculptural statement in the right location. Ficus elastica Melany’s luscious foliage is a deep, glossy green with a glamorous hint of burgundy. The dense, compact growth habit results in more air-filtering leaves.

Below are some tips and tricks to best care for your Ficus Elastica Melany! 


Light: Ficus Elastica Melany prefers bright, indirect light but does cope quite well in lower light conditions.

Water: Water when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil moist at all times, but do not overwater as this will cause leaf drop.
