Rubber Plant (Ficus elastica) 🌱

The Rubber Plant, scientifically known as Ficus elastica, is a popular and striking houseplant admired for its glossy, leathery leaves and upright growth habit. Native to Southeast Asia, this plant is also known as the Rubber Tree and is prized for its air-purifying properties.

Care Tips:

Watering: 💧 Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry, allowing excess water to drain away. Rubber Plants prefer evenly moist soil but are susceptible to root rot if overwatered. Reduce watering in winter.

Light: 🌞 Place in bright, indirect sunlight for optimal growth. While Rubber Plants can tolerate low light conditions, they thrive in moderate to bright indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

Temperature: 🌡️ Maintain temperatures between 60-75°F (15-24°C). Protect from cold drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations. Rubber Plants are sensitive to cold temperatures and may drop leaves if exposed to chilly conditions.

Potting Mix: 🏺 Plant in well-draining soil or a mixture of peat moss, perlite, and potting soil. Ensure the pot has drainage holes to prevent waterlogging.

Fertilizing: 🌱 Feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in fall and winter when growth slows down.

Pruning: ✂️ Trim leggy stems and remove any yellowing or damaged leaves regularly to maintain a tidy appearance and encourage new growth.

Humidity: 💦 Appreciates moderate indoor humidity levels. Mist the leaves occasionally or place the pot on a pebble tray filled with water to increase humidity, especially in dry indoor environments.

Suitable Location:

Rubber Plants thrive in locations with:

  • Indirect Light: 🌳 Place in bright, indirect sunlight, such as near a north or east-facing window.
  • Warmth: 🌡️ Grow in a warm environment with temperatures consistently above 60°F (15°C). Avoid exposure to cold drafts.
  • Protection: 🌬️ Shield from strong drafts and cold air, as Rubber Plants are sensitive to temperature fluctuations.

With their glossy foliage and easy-care nature, Rubber Plants are perfect for adding a touch of greenery and elegance to any indoor space. Enjoy their beauty and air-purifying qualities with proper care and attention.
