Lemon-Lime Warnecki


  • Light: Best in bright filtered light with no direct sun, as this may scorch the leaves. Dark green varieties will tolerate lower lighting conditions, but may grow slowly.
  • Water: Keep soil evenly moist. Be careful not to overwater. Once a week should be fine.Keep leaves dust-free and shiny by gently wiping them off with a damp cloth regularly. Watering Tip:Give your Rubber Tree a good soak once a month by placing it in your bathtub for 10 – 20 minutes. Do this only if your plant is still small enough to move. This eliminates any dry patches that may not get moisture during regular watering.To be water efficient, place the plant pot in a round pan within the bathtub, and using a smaller jug, continue to water the top of the plant with the water that has already drained out.
  • Humidity: Relative humidity of 40-60%. No adjustment to humidity should be necessary. Regular room humidity is fine.
  • Temperature: Normal room temperatures 16 – 24°C. Avoid sudden changes in temperature
  • Soil: A well draining potting soil with some water retentive properties.
  • Fertilizer: Feed with a good quality fertilizer during active growth, Spring through Summer as these are hungry plants due to their fast growth. Soil can be depleted of nutrients within a year, for this top dress with fresh soil every Spring. Only feed in Winter if plant is actively growing.
  • Propagation: Take stem cuttings in spring. To keep its sticky, white sap from forming a cap on the base of the cutting, place the tip in water for 30 minutes. Remove from the water and dip only the cut surface in rooting hormone. Then, insert it into moist potting mix to root.
