Developing my knowledge all the time. I love growing plants: barely any space on my windowsills, nor on my patio as it's full of pots. #renting.

Ficus elastica 'Variegata'

My #ficustineke is not looking happy. Any ideas what I can do to save it. I recently repotted it and I don’t think it liked me doing that! #advice

Mine has gone exactly the same!!! It's about 4ft high now, half the leaves have fallen off and the rest are all hanging down like yours!! Gonna try it in a cooler spot in the conservatory, but I think mines heading for the bin

@charlotte I’ve tried that but it didn’t help the plant, only myself 😁😁

@hebelover I love this plant too. So I’m gutted if I can’t save it.

Mine just didn't ever seem to adjust well to being moved inside over winter

Oh too bad. I tried to keep one. I thought my problem was over watering. But now I wonder if it was because I moved it and transplanted it. I would like to try another one some day

Was there a temperature difference between where it was and where it is now? And how much light does it get?

This is what I found on Google. I looked at several sites but this sums it up...  "You can tell if your rubber plant needs more light if it becomes leggy, its leaves lose their luster, and lower leaves fall off."
