Rubber Tree Tips and Care
Ficus elasticia

Rubber Trees, or Ficus elasticia, like bright light, but never hot sun. When your new leaves are emerging, even less light is advisable, as this will promote larger leaves..Rubber plants are very susceptible to changes in environment, such as warm to a cool room..Keep them out of drafts, and away from heat sources.

Keep your plant evenly moist during the growing cycle in spring and summer, but on the dry side during the rest of the year. They really appreciate having their leaves sponged off with a damp cloth. Use a general houseplant fertilizer, following the directions on the package.

Rubber trees like to be pot-bound, so do not repot often. Rubber plants have a tendency to lose their lower leaves, usually from environmental reasons. Cold drafts or heater vent drafts, over or underwatering can all cause this. Try to keep the enviroment as consistant as possible.
