Q.Rubber Tree Plant

Zone Louisiana | Zhizara added on May 16, 2012 | Answered

I have a rubber tree pot with 3 beautiful “trees”. I’ve grown them from a few inches to almost 3′ tall. There are three “trees” in my large pot. My question is how to get them to branch. They are big to be pinching off the tops, but I’d like more foliage. They are healthy and growing fast. I’m thinking of pruning, and just replanting the cuttings in the same pot. What do you think?

Pruning and using the cuttings for more plants sounds like an excellent idea. The pruning will encourage more bushier growth and the cuttings should root easily for you.
