Another popular indoor tree, the rubber tree is from the Ficus genus (ficus elastica) and with it’s broad, shiny leaves, makes for an attractive pop of green. Place indoors, in a spot where it can enjoy bright, indirect light and water when the soil feels dry. Make sure it drains well after watering. Gently clean leaves with tepid water to gloss up the leaves. Repot when the roots become pot-bound. Buy with, or without, a white ceramic pot cover.
