Rubber tree plant with small leaves

thedaddy added on June 26, 2012 | Answered

I have a rubber tree plant and the leaves are getting smaller and smaller. The plant is watered and in an indirect light window. Also, the plant has not added any leaves since last September. Could it be root bound?

generally, leaves getting smaller would signal to me that the plant needs more light, and/or less water. Your rubber tree - ficus decora - is not a particularly low light plant. Try moving it to a window with more light. Good luck.
