🔆 Light
Rubber plants like bright light and a lot of it, but not direct sunlight, however it can also adapt to that, as well to the low light conditions. A sunny spot shielded by a sheer curtain is often perfect for rubber plants.

Give your plant a turn every few days to expose all sides to light for even growth from all sides.

💧 Water
Stick your finger into the soil mix and if the top inch (2.5cm) of soil feels dry to the touch, apply water - Do not overwater - as this will cause leaf drop and root rot.

To give your plant the absolute best, room-temperature rainwater and bottled spring water are your best options. Any water containing sugar or salt will hurt your plant!

☁️ Humidity
Normal room humidity is fine, although it will benefit from an occasional misting using filtered-water.

🌡️ Temperature
Rubber plant does well in normal household temperatures, but prefers slightly warmer conditions: around (16-24°C). Avoid cold draughts.

🧴️ Food
Apply a weak dose of a fertilizer once or twice a month during the growing season during spring and summer.

🐾 Toxicity
Ficus leaves are mildly toxic to humans and pets. Typically, ingestion will cause mouth and stomach irritation and possible vomiting.

➕ Additional Tips
A moderate to fast-growing plant which often reaches around 60m in their native environment. When indoors, it can be trimmed to maintain a desired height, and usually grows to a height of 30cm-2m.


Do Not Overwater! This will cause leaf drop and root rot that eventually could kill the plant. The worst thing you can do regarding watering is "give it too much".

Make sure your plant is not placed near Heat or AC source. It is best to keep consistent room temperature throughout the seasons and not turn off Heat or AC when away or traveling. The best temperature ratio for almost any plant is (15°C-24°C).

Above all, make sure you’re ready for plant parenthood..
