A lovely houseplant if you like large, shiny green leaves with purple underneath. Rubber plants can get quite large over time (well over 6 feet tall) but can be kept smaller if you do not re-pot regularly. Rubber plants are great air purifiers as well as being attractive additions to your home. Rubber plants exude a white sap when cut that is somewhat toxic and can be a skin irritant to both pets and people.

 

  • Best with bright, indirect sunlight; direct morning sunlight is usually fine, but not direct afternoon sun.
  • If the window you choose faces south or west, consider putting up a sheer curtain in the summer months.
  • Rubber plants like to be a bit moist; water thoroughly, then wait until the top 2 or 3 inches of soil is dry to water again.
  • During the spring and summer growing season you will probably need to water every week or so, but during winter once or twice a month is plenty.
  • When the leaves get dusty you can wipe them with a damp cloth and make them all shiny again.
  • If you want the plant to keep growing larger, re-pot about every other year, going just one pot size larger.
  • If you cut the top off, the plant will get bushier, but that stem will not get taller.
