One of the most attractive features of the Ficus elastica is its large, beautiful, voluptuous leaves. But just like any other surface in your home, these leaves are prone to collecting dust. When this inevitably happens, don’t fret, the experts are here to help.
The easiest solution for removing dust from your Rubber Fig plant is to gently wipe the leaves with a very soft, clean, wet sponge. You can also rinse the leaves with a steady stream of water either outside with a hose or even in the shower. Removing the dust that has built up will have your Rubber Plant looking fresh and shiny. More importantly, those clean leaves will be able to soak up even more sunshine!
