Whether you're needing a tabletop plant for your office, or an easy-care and simple addition of life for your home, give the joyful Baby Rubber Plant a try.
Part of the popular Peperomia house plant family, this variety of Peperomia is loved for its marbled sage green and creamy white foliage edged in a gorgeous red.
The Baby Rubber Plant will be happy in a variety of light conditions, including artificial fluorescent light. But be sure not to place it in direct sunlight, as this will burn the leaves. Water thoroughly and then let the soil dry out in between to prevent overwatering but be sure to not allow it to stand dry for too long.
It's great for smaller spaces due to its compact growing habit - it won't encroach on your living or working space. Place it on your workspace, a countertop, or shady windowsill, and enjoy this beauty grow.
Please Note: This plant may be toxic. Keep away from animals and young children.
Follow these instructions to keep your Baby Rubber Plant healthy and happy.
Water: Keep the soil barely moist and allow the top layer (about 1-2cm) to dry out between watering. During winter, reduce watering further and allow the soil to dry out halfway before watering again.
Light: Medium to bright light is best. Keep out of the direct sun.
Humidity: Appreciates humidity. Mist your plant often to create a rainforest vibe.
Fertilize: Feed with good organic fertilizer (diluted) every month from Spring to Autumn
