How can one help a rubber tree plant that is losing leaves?

Answer

If your rubber tree plant is losing its leaves, there are steps you can take to help it, but you will need to identify the root cause of the problem. Make sure it has stable, consistent access to light, but not direct sunlight. Try to keep it in a humid, warm climate that has a temperature of about 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure you are not fertilizing your rubber tree plant more than once every two weeks, and if you suspect pests or bugs, treat it with an insecticide.
