What causes the yellowing leaves on my rubber plant?

Question: What causes the yellowing leaves on my rubber plant?

Answer: Yellowing leaves on indoor rubber plants is a common problem. It is usually a sign of overwatering. Check your plant to make sure it has adequate bottom drainage to draw excess water away from the roots. If your plant has been in the same container for a long time, remove it and its soil ball and loosen the bound roots you'll find. Remove some of the soil at the top of the ball as well, then transplant it all into a larger pot.
