Light: Rubber trees thrive in bright, indirect light. They can also tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much can scorch their leaves. Place your rubber tree in a spot with bright, filtered light for best results.

Watering: The rubber tree prefers to be kept on the dry side, so allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering. When you water, make sure to saturate the soil thoroughly, but then allow the excess water to drain away. Overwatering can lead to root rot, which can be fatal for the plant.

Soil: Rubber trees prefer a well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. A good potting mix for rubber trees can be made by combining equal parts peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite. Make sure the soil is slightly acidic, with a pH of around 6.

Fertilization: Rubber trees benefit from regular fertilization during the growing season (spring and summer). Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 2-3 weeks. During the fall and winter, reduce the frequency of fertilization or stop altogether.

Humidity: Rubber trees prefer higher humidity levels, but can tolerate lower levels as well. To increase humidity, you can place a humidifier near the plant, mist the leaves with water, or place a tray of water near the plant. Just be sure not to let the plant sit in standing water.

Temperature: Rubber trees prefer warm temperatures between 60-85°F (16-29°C). They can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures, but don't expose them to temperatures below 50°F (10°C) or they may experience leaf drop.

Propagation: Rubber trees can be propagated through stem cuttings. Take a cutting that is 4-6 inches long, remove the lower leaves, and dip the cut end in rooting hormone. Plant the cutting in a pot with well-draining soil and keep it moist. After a few weeks, the cutting should start to grow roots.
