Morning🪴 Sam beside the very sad Rubber Tree. After moving in inside for the winter, it proceeded to drop most of its leaves, moved it into the conservatory, and its stopped!! Better light, but too cold really. Not sure if the middle leaves will ever regrow or not?🤔 #samson #rubbertree #rubbertree-variegated #ficus-elastica #ficus-elastica-variegata #houseplant #houseplants #jrshouseplants #foliage #indoorgarden #indoorgardening #indoorplants

Variegated Rubber Tree has put on fantastic growth this year, and is on the Autumn 'To Repot' list. My head says plastic pot for practicality, but my heart says a nice big, rounded, ceramic pot 💙🤔 #rubbertree #rubbertree-variegated #ficus-elastica #ficus-elastica-variegata #houseplant #houseplants #jrshouseplants #foliage #foliagefriday #indoorgarden #indoorgardening #indoorplants

Thank you all, gonna go with Joan, and repot it into a plastic pot, and get a big ceramic planter to sit it in. And thanks for the lovely comments about the Houseplants, its all trial and error for me, I do nothing other than water and mist, I rarely ever...I never feed my plants🪴😲 @sharonhayden @charlotte @jacaranda @gjones @Auricula @juliesgarden @joannie.a

The Rubber Tree is loving life outside and the new leaves are an amazing colour ❤ #rubber-tree #rubbertree-variegated #ficus-elastica #ficus-elastica-variegata #houseplant #houseplants #jrshouseplants #houseplantholiday

😄 They always come through reddish pink, but I've never seen it this vibrant a colour, which is a bit odd as it gets less sun where it is outside than where it was inside 🤔 @anges
