Rubber plant requires plenty of light to thrive but can survive in less than ideal conditions for a while.
The rubber plant produces large, oblong, thick, leathery, dark green leaves, often with a red mid-vein. Many cultivars with variegated foliage are available. Although usually seen with a single trunk, the rubber plant can be pinched back and encouraged to branch.
This plant can survive for long periods of time in low light, but it begins to lose its lower leaves. Since these are never replaced, it is better to consider the rubber plant as one requiring high light.
