She loves a rub down every once in a while, this allows her to really shine. Despite the name, she requires very little care, especially once in her 25cm Mr Kitly x Decor Self-Watering Pot. Please peruse any extra care instructions below.
Wipe leaves with a damp cloth. This removes the dust but also adds a bit of moisture to the leaves, especially in dry periods.
In winter (dormant season), water once or twice a month.
If leaves turn yellow – brown and start to fall off, this is likely a sign of over watering.
If the leaves appear droopy, this could be a sign of needing a drink. Give water gradually until the leaves perk up.
Bright but indirect lighting.
If you rubber plant starts to lose leaves from the bottom, this could be a sign that it needs more light.
Fertilise lightly during the growing period. Do not fertilise in winter.
