Q.I Repotted My American Baby Rubber Plant Yesterday And Today I\’m Noticing That The Leaves Look As If They Have Been “pinched”

; they look “watery”, like wet from the inside. Some of them only have “watery” edges, others turned almost completely “watery”. It is in a plastic pot, inside, facing a south window. I moved it a little further from the window so that it doesn’t receive as much light as usual.

These plants will not tolerate direct light at all. They will not tolerate wet soils, either. Disturbing the roots during transplant can cause issues, as well.

Be sure that the conditions surrounding the plant are conducive to proper growth, as these can be a bit finicky.
