Ficus elastica 'Melany' has a more compact habit and narrower/smaller leaves than many varieties of Rubber Plant. The glossy leaves are greenish burgundy in color with a contrasting light pink sheath that protects newly forming leaves.   
  • Known for easy care and sculptural statement
  • Perfect statement plant
  • Prefers bright, airy south or west-facing rooms, but can tolerate all lighting conditions. Avoid direct sunlight.
  • Uses: Bright Spaces, Desktops

Care Information

  • For optimal performance, keep at 60-85°F (15-29°C).
  • Protect furniture when watering.
  • Feed once per month at half strength when plant is actively growing.
  • If you would like a bushier plant, prune your plant to promote branching.  The plant exudes a white, milky sap when pruned or broken, so if your skin comes in contact with it, wash your hands immediately.
  • These are NOT low light plants and need to be right in front of a window for best results. Some direct sun is beneficial (east or west window) and they can even grow in your sunniest window.
  • Allow the top 2-3 inches of soil to dry out before watering again.
  • Use a well-draining potting mix. Adding perlite and orchid bark will improve drainage.
  • Never allow to sit in standing water.
  • As with any Ficus, avoid any drafty areas and avoid placing near cooling and heating vents or the plant may drop its leaves. 
  • The broad leaves will get very dusty, so use a duster to clean the leaves, wipe with a damp sponge, or rinse the leaves off.
