Planting and careExtremely dry soil causes baby rubber plant to drop its leaves, while consistently wet soil may cause root or stem rot. Water only when the soil becomes dry, usually about once every 10 to 14 days for indoor plants and once every week for outdoor plants.As a general rule, baby rubber plant prefers to remain slightly pot-bound when grown indoors. The plant requires re-potting only once every three or four years.Rubber Tree care
Cut below the thinner parts, just above the thick part of the branches. Cut right above leaf nodes. Try to prune the over all size of the plant. Everywhere you prune, new branches will spring up. Think of it as giving your Rubber Tree a haircut. Always keep one set of leaves, at least, so it can continue to make food for itself and regrow.

Needs bright light but prefers indirect light that isn t too hot.

Susceptible to rot, so water only when completely dry.

Place in a light, well-drained compost.

For ideal growing conditions, plants grown indoors need temperatures of 60 to 65 degrees Farenheight during the night and 85 degrees during the day.
