Rubber plants can grow into huge trees with invasive roots when grown in the ground. Therefore we don’t recommend planting rubber plants in a garden.
Rubber plant leaves can collect dust so regularly gently wipe the leaves with a damp cloth.
To keep rubber plants at a manageable size, or promote bushier growth, trim off the stem tips. Avoid contact with the white sap, which can cause skin irritation.
As rubber plants grow quickly, they may need re-potting into a larger pot every few years. If you prefer to keep the plant in its current pot, simply remove the plant from its current pot, gently trim back around 25 per cent of the root ball and re-plant back into the same pot with fresh, quality potting mix, like Yates Speciality Potting Mix Plants and Ferns
There are some very attractive varieties available, including plants with rich burgundy, creamy green or mottled foliage.
