If you’re looking for an easy to grow plant for your home or office, consider a rubber plant. Rubber plants are long lived plants which adapt quickly to the conditions in your home or office.
Because rubber plants don’t like to have wet feet, plant in a pot that has a saucer and drains well. Remember to water and fertilize regularly and after watering, drain any excess water out of the saucer.
To keep the leaves clean, simply wipe off with a moist rag. For extra shine, spray the leaves with a leaf shine product available at your local nursery or garden center.
