These tropical plants generally have thick stems and fleshy, variegated leaves. Flowers are yellow or brown cone-shapes spikes. Gardeners value this small, compact plant for its thick, waxy foliage, ornamental flowers and ease of care. In warm climates, the plant serves as an outdoor ground cover, although it rarely reaches over 12 inches in height.

Caring for Rubber

  • 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.
