Hi!

I have had my rubber plant for about 5 years and over the past 2/3 months it has been very very limp and leaves turning yellow and dropping off, although this seems to have stopped but it is still very limp.

I have not changed how I care for it so I don’t understand. It was by an open window for my cat but has been for about 2 years and was fine. It kept drying out very quickly and but I always watered it. There didn’t seem to be enough soil so I have bought house plant compost and topped it up about 2 weeks ago but no improvement. I have now moved it away from window and into a warmer brighter room....can I save this plant? I’ve had it a long long time!

Can you upload a close- up picture of one of the leaves? Are there any small insects on the leaves? Check especially the bottom leaves underneath. I might be incorrect but we had the same problems a few weeks ago and it turned out to be some sort of infestation.

Hi! Nope nothing! Normal leaves but they feel less firm almost soft and just very very floppy

You need to take the plant outdoors and take the plant out of the pot and get a feel and a look at the roots. Is the soil very dry, or very wet, after you find out, tell us which you have, "too wet or too dry"?
