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.


Medium to bright light, avoiding direct sunlight.


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.


Maintain between 60-90F.


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