My mom has a rubber tree she has had for four years now and it's about to take over her house. She is wanting to plant it outside. My question is, will it survive being outside, and what does it take to care for it?
Planting Rubber Tree Outside

Rubber trees are only hardy to 30F. If it gets colder than that at all where you live, the tree cannot not be planted outside. You can keep it outside in a container in the summer though. If it is too large, you may want to consider pruning it: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/rubber-tree/prune-rubber-tree.htm
