This easy-to-grow indoor house plant will grow into an eight-foot-tall tree for a major pop of greenery in a room. If you prefer a smaller plant, just make your rubber tree into a shrub shape by pruning any long stems. The attractive shine to dark green leaves have their own charm.
When taking care of a rubber tree, the balance of light and water is crucial. The plant needs to be kept moist during growing season. Wiping the leaves with a damp cloth maybe a good idea or else too much water will turn the leaves yellow. Whereas in dormant season, watering should be done only once or twice a month. The fertilizer should be water soluble and the plant should be fertilized every three to four weeks during growth period.
