Rubber Plant

Ficus Elastica

Plant Story

Native to tropical regions of Asia, the rubber plant makes a great interior container plant because of its hardiness and minimal care.

Light

Medium to bright light, avoiding direct sunlight.

Water

Tolerates periods of drought. Add water once the top two inches of soil feels dry, or leaves are noticeably drooping. More at risk for overwatering than underwatering.

Temperature

Maintain between 60-90F.

Fertilizer

Apply a balanced houseplant fertilizer at 1/2 strength once every other month during warm growing months.
