How Do I Help My Rubber Plant?


lizbeth666 added on May 22, 2011 | Answered

I have a rubber plant which is about 4 feet high. The problem is a branch of over 2 feet which has a few branches of its own and is as thick as the original trunk. This is making the whole thing unstable. We have propped the branch up with wood for now but the branch will have to come off. Can anyone please tell us how to do this and how do we help the wound on the main stem heal?

This article will help with the pruning:

After you prune, you can use some fungicide on the wound but nothing else. Sealing the wound can trap disease in the wound and harm the plant.
