Is my #ficus elastica about to flower? Not exactly although the stunning red growth looks like a flower that is about to open it is actually the new growth or the leaf sheath! Once the leaf is ready to open up it sheds the pretty red “slipcover” and opens! • • • • • #green #tips #themoreyouknow???? #ficuselastica #houseplants #burgundy #igdc #madeindc #greenthumb #urbangardens #plantparenthood

Want a green thumb tip this afternoon? Some plants like this #ficus elastica can be sensitive to cold water... so simply fill a container of water the night before and let it sit overnight to prevent any root damage due to cold tap water! This also allows chlorine to evaporate... #bonus! . . . . . #tipsandtricks #greenthumb #houseplants #indoorgarden #green #bythings #igdc #madeindc❤️ #ficuselastica #plantcare #plants
