Caring for your Ficus elastica Rubber Tree

  • Provide medium to bright indirect light. The more light it gets, the faster the growth. Avoid intense direct light.
  • Water just as the potting mix is getting dry throughout the pot. It's better to allow the potting mix to fully dry than to keep the mix too wet.
  • Remove any excess water from the saucer after watering.
  • Fertilize once in spring and once during the summer with an all-purpose organic indoor fertilizer (use less than recommended on package) or use a diluted liquid fertilizer each time or every other time you water spring through summer.
