Planting and care

  • Extremely dry soil causes baby rubber plant to drop its leaves, while consistently wet soil may cause root or stem rot.
  • Water only when the soil becomes dry, usually about once every 10 to 14 days for indoor plants and once every week for outdoor plants.
  • As a general rule, baby rubber plant prefers to remain slightly pot-bound when grown indoors.
  • The plant requires re-potting only once every three or four years.

    Rubber Tree care

This Ficus can keep under the indoor condition where the direct sunlight is available. Apply liquid fertilizer on a monthly basis between spring and summer.
