|I have a burgundy rubber plant and until recently it has been doing great. I sprouted dozens of new leaves. Now, it is starting to lose some of the bottom leaves 2-3 at a time. Is this normal? What can I do to solve this problem?

|Rubber plants will naturally take on a somewhat tree-type outline with age, dropping their lowest leaves as they grow more new foliage at the top. You might be able to keep them on a bit longer by gradually increasing the amount of light it receives.
