Rubber Tree Care 101

Rubber plants are a hardy and resilient indoor plant that look great in any home. These stunning trees can grow up to 3m tall indoors when in the right conditions.

However, prolonged harsh direct sunlight can result in scorched leaves. Be careful when placing this plant in front of a window - the window can intensify the rays on a hot summers day. 

Water

Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

Pets

These plant are toxic to pets. So steer clear of munching mouths.
