: I have had a rubber plant for 6 months now. I repotted it about a month ago. Now all the leaves are falling off. The leaves droop, then the stems connecting them to the rest of the plant turn yellow and finally the leaves fall off. I am getting very frustrated with it as I think I have been doing all the right things: I water it about 2 times a week, the room is warm, and I try to put it in the sun of a window about 3 times a week. Does anyone have any good advice??
: Also, will the leaves ever grow back (most of them have fallen off already and it looks like a stick with a couple of leaves)?
the leaves will grow back. my three year old has torn many of my leaves off and they have grown back. I have had my plant for five years now. When I repotted mine I used miracle grow potting soil and it helped. The watering two times a week is what I do, but I wouldn't give it direct sunlight, if you have a window that the pot could sit under that is what I do with mine and it seems pretty good. I am not a plant expert so I hope this helps some.
