can my plant survive outdoors for the winter
I have a rubber tree plant that is about 6 feet tall. It is getting too big for my living room. I live in the northeastern part of the country and I was wondering if there is any way that my plant can survive outdoors during the winter if I wrap it in burlap or something. We do get snow and freezing nights from November through April.

Rubber trees are only hardy to 30 F. If it gets colder than 30 F where you live, it should not be left outside. Anything lower will kill them. You can trim your rubber plant if it is becoming too large. Here is an article that you may find helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/rubber-tree/prune-rubber-tree.htm
