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.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
