Place your Rubber Tree in a room that gets a medium amount of natural light or near a window with a sheer curtain for filtered sunlight. Rotate the plant occasionally to encourage even growth.

Light Requirements

Light Requirements

The Rubber Tree will grow well in medium, indirect light. Direct, bright sunlight should be avoided.

Watering Needs

Watering Needs

Water when the top part of soil has dried out. Water evenly so that the soil is damp, not soggy. When watering, remove the plant from its decorative planter and water with fresh, lukewarm water generously and evenly from above, so the soil is thoroughly drenched. Then allow the water to drain freely from the soil before returning the plant to its decorative planter. Mist or wipe down the leaves with a damp cloth to promote shiny foliage. Reduce watering during the cold season.

Temperature Preferences

Temperature Preferences

Does well at room temperature between 60°F - 77°F. Cold temperatures should be avoided.

Humidity Tolerance

Humidity Tolerance

Does well at normal (about 40% - 60%) humidity levels. If the air around the plant is too dry, use a humidifier or occasionally mist the plant to increase humidity.

Repotting Needs

Repotting Needs

The plant can live happily in the provided grow pot for up to 2 years. Check if the plant is ready to be repotted by touching the soil and seeing if it has become loose, or if the roots have filled the bottom of the pot. Repot using a rich, well-draining soil. When your plant is ready to be repotted, you can follow our simple how-to guide.
