Type: Plastic Nursery Pot
Size: Medium :: 4 Inch Diameter
Light: Provide bright, indirect sunlight for your Baby Rubber Plant. It thrives in moderate to bright light conditions but can tolerate lower light levels. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.
Temperature: Maintain a warm environment with temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Keep the plant away from drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations.
Watering: Allow the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil to dry out between waterings. Water thoroughly but ensure that excess water drains from the pot. Baby Rubber Plants are more tolerant of slight underwatering than overwatering.
Humidity: These plants can adapt to different humidity levels but prefer moderate humidity. If your indoor environment is very dry, consider misting the plant or placing it on a humidity tray to increase moisture.
Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix with good aeration. A mix designed for succulents or a blend of potting soil, perlite, and peat moss works well.
Pot: Choose a pot with drainage holes to prevent waterlogged soil. Repot your Baby Rubber Plant only when it becomes root-bound, which is not very frequent.
Fertilization: Feed your plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid over-fertilizing, as it can lead to salt buildup.
Pruning: Trim or pinch back leggy growth or any yellowing leaves to maintain the plant's shape and encourage healthy growth.
Pests: Keep an eye out for common indoor plant pests like spider mites or mealybugs. Inspect your plant regularly and treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
Propagation: Baby Rubber Plants can be propagated from stem or leaf cuttings. Allow cuttings to callus for a day or two before planting them in well-draining soil.
