Q.Rubber House Plant

Anonymous added on May 2, 2011 | Answered

I have a rubber house plant and I just can’t get it to grow in full blossom. It is about 2 1/2 – 3 feet tall, but does not have a lot of leaves. I feed the plant with Miracle Grow at least one a month in the summer, but not in the winter. How can I get this plant to grow with many leaves? I have the plant in a bedroom that does not get a lot of sunlight, but is near a window. Could I set it outside during the summer or leave it in and put it near another window? What shall I do to make it grow?
