- Humidity - leaves can absorb a lot of moisture, so spraying with a mister every few days will encourage healthy growth.
- Medium light - It loves a bright room but not partial to direct sun, so if your room is very sunny, place away from the window.
- Light watering - Water whenever the top two inches of soil are dry. It needs a lot less water in winter than in summer.
- If you notice dust building up on those lovely leaves, gently wipe it off. It will keep pores clean and let leaves breathe freely.

The rubber plant gets its name from the white latex coursing through its veins, which was once used to make rubber. Even its handsome, glossy leaves have a thick, rubber-like look. Give it all the care it needs - don’t forget it loves a regular misting - and you’ll be rewarded with a striking plant that will be a focal point in any room. It likes a medium level of light and watering only when the top two inches of soil are dry. It will also appreciate a feed with liquid fertiliser once per month in spring and summer.
