Q.Can I Put a Rubber Tree Outside

Anonymous added on May 23, 2011 | Answered

I received a rubber tree plant as a gift last year.  I keep it in my bedroom near french doors. I water it once a week. The leaves keep coming off and some grow back, but then fall off again. What am I doing wrong?

Rubber trees are only hardy to 30 degrees F. If it gets colder than that at all where you live, the tree cannot not be planted outside permanently. You can keep it outside in a container in the summer though.
