Do rubber tree plants clean the air? While rubber plants (Ficus robusta) are grown as easy-care houseplants, they also improve indoor air quality, according to studies conducted by NASA. Their large leaves can absorb airborne chemicals and break them down, rendering them harmless. Rubber plants also eliminate bacteria and mold-spores in the air.

Do plants die of old age BBC? Instead of physically declining with age, as humans do, perennial plants avoid a progressive deterioration in their physiological functions. As a result, older plants are no more likely to die than younger ones, andare just as capable of reproducing.

How quickly do rubber plants grow? Growth RateA quickly growing species, a rubber tree gains 24 inches or more in height each growing season. In an outdoor setting, it can reach a maximum height of 50 to100 feet, though 25 feet or so may be more likely in a home garden. The tree may reach its mature height after only 13 years.
