Reduce the watering
Plants don't require as much water in the colder months, so skip a watering or two to cut the frequency back by about 50%. Follow the standard watering advice and only water if the soil is dry an inch or two below the surface.
Our top tips on how to care for your Rubber Tree.

1) All things light
The Rubber Tree likes to live in medium, indirect sunlight to dappled sun. Prolonged exposure to bright, direct sunlight could cause their gorgeous leaves to scorch and burn. If the lower leaves start to drop or their leaves loose that glossy shine, your plant needs some sunshine!

2) Hot Hot Hot
Rubber Tree's come from a tropical climate and so they LOVE humidity. Treat your Rubber Tree to a good mist every few days or pair them up with a few buddies to help increase the humidity. We promise they'll thank you for it!
3) Watering schedule
Your Rubber Plant enjoys weekly watering but remember that your schedule should vary between season. During the winter months you can cut back the frequency to as little as once a fortnight! If you're not sure, check the soil 2 inches below the surface before you give your plant a drink.
4) My leaves are falling off, what should I do?
Falling leaves indicate that your Rubber Plant has suffered from low humidity levels. Try misting it more frequently to remedy that, or placing it on a pebble tray partly filled with water. Make sure that the soil is not touching the water as this could cause the roots to rot.
5) My leaves are brown and drooping, what should I do?
Browning or drooping leaves often indicates your plant has been overwatered. Ensure you let your plant’s soil completely dry out between waterings and allow proper drainage. Remember that your watering should vary between seasons. During the winter months you can cut back the frequency to as little as once a fortnight! Make sure to check the soil 2 inches below the surface before you give your plant a drink.
