Caring for your Indian Rubber Tree

The Indian Rubber Tree is a popular indoor plant that is valued for its attractive, glossy leaves and relatively easy care requirements. Here are some tips for caring for an Indian Rubber Tree:


The Indian Rubber Tree prefers bright, indirect light, but it can also tolerate lower light levels. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.


The plant prefers consistently moist soil, but it should not be waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering it again.


The Indian Rubber Tree prefers higher humidity levels, so mist the leaves regularly or place the plant on a tray filled with pebbles and water.


Fertilize the plant during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced fertilizer every two weeks.


Prune the plant to maintain its shape and size, and remove any dead or yellow leaves.


Keep an eye out for pests such as spider mites and mealybugs and treat them promptly with an insecticidal soap or neem oil.

  28. Angela T. (verified owner)

    My ficus arrived a little banged up from transit through no fault of PlantVine. About 5 of the lower leaves were severely damaged. I order plants online regularly and PlantVine does the best packaging I’ve ever seen. He’s clearly a strong and healthy plant so hopefully with time and tlc he’ll recover

  29. Bailey L. (verified owner)
