Accordingly, do rubber plant leaves grow back?
Rubber plants do not regrow leaves from the lower parts of their stalks, only from the top. So there is no way to make a plant less leggy.
Also, how often do you water a rubber plant? Rubber plants' water needs vary according to season: In the growing season (summer), the plant should be kept moist. This includes wiping the leaves with a damp cloth or even misting them. During the dormant season, your plant may only need water once or twice a month.
Similarly one may ask, why is my rubber plant leaves drooping?
Brown, drooping leaves indicate the plant is being over-watered. The soil may become saturated when the plant cannot absorb anymore water. The soil may also have a damp, musty smell if root rot has invaded the plant. When you recognize these symptoms, the rubber tree plant is in need of rescue.
Do rubber plants need direct sunlight?
Light: Rubber plants prefer bright, indirect light that isn't too hot. Direct sunlight can result in scorched leaves. Keep your rubber plant in well-draining soil at all times to combat root rot. In their dormant season in the winter you want to keep the soil dry but not too dry.
