Keep your Rubber Plant thriving!

The popular rubber plant, also known as Ficus Elastica, has been popping up everywhere. We couldn’t wait to get our hands on this indoor plant as they are easy to grow and require minimal care. Just like any indoor plant, there are a few points you need to consider in keeping the Rubber Plant alive and thriving all year round.

Watering

The Rubber Plant has big beautiful leaves, and this means you will be required to wipe off the dust that lands and easily accumulate. This is very important to keep the plant looking healthy. You will also be required to mist your plant leaves regularly to make sure the soil is always kept moist. This may be required to be done weekly if your home is warm or dryer than others.

Soil

Well-drained soil is essential for the Rubber Plant. If the soil doesn’t dry out easily, it will cause the indoor plant leaves to turn yellow or brown and eventually fall off. Keep an eye out for this!

Light

They love sunlight and need it as long as it is indirect. This means something is filtering the strong sunbeams from the leaves, such as a glass window or sheer curtain. Bright filtered light will ensure your rubber plant thrives!
