Ficus Ruby Bio
An exquisite plant with large rubbery leaves, the Ficus Ruby is best known for its extraordinary variegated foliage. Streaked with shades of pink and red against a vibrant dark green, it adds the perfect pop of color to any space. Potted in a premium quality self-watering pot with a soft matte finish, this stunning plant can reach up to 10 feet tall indoors. Native to the tropical zones of Malaysia and India, the Ficus Ruby thrives in warm, humid environments, so be sure to keep it somewhere cozy to make it feel at home.
Ficus Ruby grows best in a space with bright direct light, where the sunlight streams inside directly, and can also adapt to spaces with bright indirect light, where the sun rays are diffused. Avoid placing it in spaces with low light or spaces without natural sunlight.

Ficus Ruby Care
The more indirect light the Ficus Ruby gets, the better the chances are that its leaves will retain their beautiful pink and ruby hues. To help it grow optimally and evenly, occasionally dust the leaves with a microfiber cloth and rotate the pot by a ¼ turn once a month. Rotation will ensure the leaves get the light they need on all of their leaves.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Big Does a Ruby Ficus Get?
The Ruby Ficus can grow up to 50 feet in the wild, but it gets to about 10 feet as an indoor plant. It is a slow grower, only adding 1-2 feet annually. Its slow growth means the plant won't fully mature until 5-10 years, depending on its environment and yearly growth rate.
How Do I Make My Ficus Ruby More Red?
The way to maintain or encourage your Ficus ruby's red or pink coloring is by ensuring it gets adequate sunlight. Place your plant in direct sunlight for the early morning hours, then pull back to indirect light in the afternoon when the sun gets hotter. Some Ficus ruby can handle full light all day long, but it's important to monitor it to ensure the leaves don't get scorched.
