How to Water
Make sure you allow the rubber plant to dry out between each wearing. You only need to water when the soil is dry to touch and mist the leaves during summer to increase humidity. Wipe the leaves with a sponge when required to keep them clean and glossy.
Light and Soil Conditions
Will need bright but indirect sunlight. Use a good, neutral potting compost. Keep the room temperature above 12 degrees and avoid cold draughts.
This is an evergreen plant that gives you year-round, indoor greenery. Only repot a rubber plant when the tree is semi-dormant in late winter or early spring as they can be sensitive to transplant shock.
