Rubber Plant (Nick Name Ruby)
For those searching for a tough and easy-going indoor plant, look no further than the rubber plant; it’s the plant of their dreams. This plant can reach staggering heights within a few years. The shiny glossy leaves look great in most homes and although young plants start off small, they will fill the space in an empty corner quickly.
Some types of rubber plants can be toxic to pets, so be sure to get a safe kind if there are cats or dogs in the home.
How to Care for a Rubber Plant
Light: The rubber plant likes indirect sunlight. Use some sort of thin curtain to hide the heavy sun beams, yet still give a light glow to the rubber plant.
Water: You should keep the soil moist, but don’t drown it. You should also wipe the leaves down with a damp cloth to keep them moist and to help your plant absorb more sunlight. Misting is another option if you don't want to wipe down every leaf. Keep your rubber plant in well-draining soil at all times to combat root rot.
Soil: The most important soil for the rubber plant is one that drains well. Rubber plants do not like sitting in puddles of water.
Temperature and Humidity: The rubber plant is a tropical plant so it thrives in humid, moist areas. They become used to their temperature, but it needs to stay consistent.
