pot size for rubber tree plant
received a lovely rubber tree plant as a gift, but it is in a small plastic pot. When should I repot. Pot is 8 inches across.
Rubber trees need repotting when the roots become visible on the soil surface or if the plant begins lifting itself out of the pot. Repot the plants in late winter or early spring when the rubber tree is semi-dormant and less prone to transplant shock.
If you don't re-pot your plants, they will not grow. However, don't put rubber plants in pots that are too big. Transplanting to pots that are about an inch bigger in diameter than the previous pot is a good rule of thumb.
