Plant Care

Watering

Water once a week or when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil lightly moist at all times, but do not overwater as this will cause brown spots and leaf drop. Curly or dry leaves suggest, the plant is dry and needs watering. Water in the early morning or late evening when temperatures are cooler. Always check your soil before watering.

Light

Bright indoor light or indirect sun. 6 hours to 8 hours

Temperature

Maintain temperatures between 18°C - 24°C. Avoid draughts as these can create undesirable temperature fluctuations. Consider giving your plant an occasional misting twice every week to maintain the optimum humidity level.

Fertilizer

Apply liquid fertilizer once in 15 days when the plant is actively growing. For best results use Folikraft ready to use Indoor Plant Food.

Plant Bio

The rubber plant is a popular ornamental plant from the Ficus genus. For the indoor grower, looking for a tree type plant species with attractive foliage which can grow from 1 ft to over 8 ft tall, this is an excellent choice. The rubber plant is all about having a small tree indoors with broad shiny attractive leaves. When this plant is about 1 – 2 ft tall, it is well suited to be sitting as a centerpiece on a table, on a shelf, or on a windowsill, but once it begins to grow above 3 ft it looks great standing next to a fireplace, television area or near door entrances (as longs as there are no cold drafts).

Temperature: Average room temperatures of 60 - 75°F (15 - 24°C are fine. Avoid lower than 55°F (12°C), sudden temperature drops and cold drafts.

Light: A nice brightly lit spot is ideal, without direct sunlight.

Watering: Water once the soil becomes slightly dry to the touch and make sure the pot has sufficient drainage holes to allow excess water to seep through. The worst thing you can do regarding watering is "give it too much".

Soil: A well-draining and well-aerated potting soil is needed. 1 part peat, 1 part pine bark, and 1 part coarse sand (or perlite) is a good mix.
