Caring for Ficus Elastica Robusta

  • Extremely dry soil causes baby rubber plant to drop its leaves, while consistently wet soil may cause root or stem rot.

  • 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.
