- Common Name(s):
- Rubber plant
A popular ornamental houseplant in temperate climates. Broad, shiny attractive leaves. The trunk may need training or support as it grows taller. It tolerates low light. It prefers to remain in one location and does not do well with drafts or cold temperatures. Use a damp soft cloth or sponge to clean dust off of leaves.
Overwatering can cause loss of leaves as can temperatures drops or cold drafts. It is normal for some bottom leaves to turn yellow and drop. Mealybugs, scales, and spidermites can be problematic.
