The Q&A Archives: Caring for a rubber tree plant

Question: I have a rubbertree plant that is a cut ofof another one. It is about 30

Answer: Sally,

You can cut the top to form a multi stemmed bush rather than a single trunk type plant with side branches. Either approach is fine. The key to a happy healthy rubber plant is to provide plenty of light. Direct sun is not necessary but bright light is. Keep the soil moist but not too saturated as good drainage is important. Fertilize monthly from March to October with a soluble plant food such as Miracle Gro following label instructions.
