rubber plant cold damage
I left my rubber tree plant outside and it might have gotten down below 32 degrees. Can it still be salvaged or should it just go on to the compost pile? My rubber tree plant is about 4 to 5 foot tall in a container. I was in the process of moving and forgot to bring it in off of the porch. When we did it it looked like it was dead - all the leaves were brownish and droopy.

Anything that is brown and floppy will not come back. But, the stem may still be ok. If the stem is firm, don't lose hope. It can regrow its leaves. Just give it some TLC and time. If the stem is mushy, the plant is a total loss and should be discarded.
