Melany Rubber Plant
Ficus elastica 'Melany'
|Description||An exciting, darkly dramatic variety of a classic houseplant. Dark, glossy green leaves have a dramatic hint of burgundy. New leaves emerge from the top of the plant in a spike-shape covered with a light-pink sheath for an extra splash of color. Can easily be kept to a small size to fit your space, or let grow into a tall statement plant to add a tropical accent to a room.|
|Light||Bright Indirect Light|
|Watering||Water when top two inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Prized for foliage|
|Mature Size||Reaches 6 ft. tall or taller, 2 ft. wide. Trim to maintain desired height.|
|Special Features||Easy Care|
|Care||Prefers bright, indirect light, but will tolerate lower light conditions. Provide well-draining potting soil. Water when the top two inches of soil is dry; overwatering can cause leaf drop. Avoid sudden drops of temperature or cold drafts. Sticky sap is poisonous and can be a skin irritant: wash off promptly if it comes in contact with your skin.|
