How Close To A Window Can You Place A Rubber Plant

Ask the Expert: How close to a southeast window can I put a rubber I want to purchase a rubber plant and plan to put in my living room near my southeast window. I know it needs bright light but how many feet away from my window can I safely put this plant so it doesn’t burn? There is sheer curtains in this window but it still receives bright filtered light.

  1. Susi,

    There isn’t a set rule on how many feet away, more like a rule of thumb. The rule is keep your rubber plant far enough from the window that direct light doesn’t beat down on the plant. At our garden center the main window faces west, we place the rubber plants about a foot from south side of that window. We can do this because of the angle of the sun — the plant gets light but sunlight doesn’t beat down on it. At home in my sunroom, the rubber plant is five feet from the window because of the intense sunlight and heat. So take a look at the area you where want to place the rubber plant and see exactly what type of light occur throughout the day.
