What’s going on with my rubber plant?
My rubber plant is a relatively new member of my plant family and I recently repotted it into a pot slightly bigger than the one it was in originally. It’s still kind of small but figure it would be better than the original one for the time being. It seems to be doing well — standing taller than before, leaves green and strong. Except the lower leaves — it dropped two already. They seem to turn brown overnight. I inspected it for pests and didn’t find anything, but just in case — treated it with Neem oil and a 4:1 water:hydrogen peroxide since I recently had an issue 6with gnats. It’s so odd and I can’t figure out what the issue is. Can anybody share their experience? #HappyPlants #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #PlantAddict #PlantTherapy #PlantWitch 6 #PestControl

It's perfectly normal for a plant to go into shock when repotted. It may just be shedding older leaves as normal process of getting older. Try never to repot unless absolutely necessary. Most plants like being snug
