Why Is My Rubber Tree Losing Its Leaves?

d.faurschou added on September 15, 2015 | Answered

My rubber tree is dropping leaves on a daily basis. We moved recently, and the light source changed from a south exposure to a north. I have since put the tree in our TV room that is a south exposure. The tree is still producing new leaves but it looks pretty scrawny. Will it survive? Do I need to "prune" it? Fertilize it? Water it less? Repot it for more root space? I had it outside last summer and it did so well. You can see on the pic how many leaves have dropped. Thank you for any help you can offer.

The move and change in light is likely the cause of leaf drop.

Try to find a good location and avoid moving it to much.
