Rubber Plant Belize

Rubber Plant Belize Care Guide


Rubber Plant Belize prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions but may grow more slowly and lose some of its vibrant coloration. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves and cause them to develop brown patches.


Water the Rubber Plant Belize when the top 1-2 inches of the soil feel dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, allowing excess water to drain out from the bottom of the pot. During winter or cooler months, reduce watering frequency as the plant's growth slows down.


Maintain moderate to high humidity levels, ideally between 50-60%. Use a humidifier, pebble tray, or mist the leaves occasionally to increase humidity, especially in dry indoor environments.


Keep the Rubber Plant Belize in a warm environment with temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C) during the day and no lower than 60°F (15°C) at night. Avoid placing the plant near cold drafts or sudden temperature fluctuations, which can cause stress and leaf drop.


Feed the Rubber Plant Belize with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the winter months when the plant is dormant.


Rubber Plant Belize is toxic to pets and humans if ingested. The sap of the ficus plant can also be a skin irritant for some people, so handle with care and keep it out of reach of children and pets.

Additional Care Information

Use well-draining soil to prevent waterlogging and maintain good root health. Prune the Rubber Plant Belize regularly to maintain its shape and encourage bushy growth. Rubber Plant Belize can be propagated easily through stem cuttings. Simply cut a healthy stem below a leaf node and place it in water or moist soil to root.


Leaf Drop: Sudden leaf drop can be caused by changes in light, temperature, or watering routines. Try to keep conditions consistent and monitor the plant for signs of stress. Yellow Leaves: Yellowing leaves may indicate overwatering, underwatering, or a nutrient deficiency. Adjust your watering routine, check the soil moisture and nutrient levels, and consider repotting if the soil is compacted. Pest Infestation: Rubber Plant Belize can be susceptible to common houseplant pests such as spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. Regularly inspect the plant for signs of pests and treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil as needed.
