When I repot a rubber plant in a larger pot, how do I cut away the plastic pot it came in? My indoor rubber plant is about 2 feet tall. How much water should I give my indoor rubber plant, as it seems to be dry in two days. This is my first rubber plant and can I use Miracle-Grow potting soil to transplant this rubber and other houseplants?
