An old rubber plant
I have a thirty year old rubber plant, as you can see it’s only the end alive, can it be cut off and repotted? Thank you Penney

This isn't a rubber plant. This is a type of yucca! It doesn't have the same care as a rubber plant, but CAN survive in such conditions. Hard pruning will bring it back to life, but you will also need to repot it while cutting off the bottom 1/3 of the root ball. Shake off the old soil and replace it with fresh soil. Water it in, letting any extra drain off. Give it an all purpose fertilizer after it starts to show new growth again.
