I have inherited a large rubber plant last April. Since Christmas I have had 4 leaves yellow and fall off. The leaves in question are all in the midde of the plant. What am I doing wrong. I use jug of water per week, all on a Friday



Do you perhaps have it too close to a radiator? Regards the watering, I think a jug once a week at this time of year might be too much....instead of watering once a week whatever, try letting the surface dry out before you water your plant. Also, make sure it isn't sitting in water - let it drain fully before putting it back on it's dish or whatever. Do remember that it will loose leaves at some point wahtever you do - even evergreen leaves don't last for ever.
