Q.My rubber plants leaves are very small why?
There were 3 different stems when I planted them from cuts. 2 were growing very small leaves and the other not to bad in size. So I took them out of the pot and separated the bigger from the smaller one. I’m not sure what to do next?? Plant them or cut them back root star over??
Thank you Wendy

Just plant them into soil. They won't do well in water. Make sure to let them dry out pretty thoroughly between waterings, as they are very drought tolerant. Plant them all separately. They will take a long time to recover any root damage, so expect it to be a month or so before you notice any signs of recovery. This is just going to be a long battle of patience. They don't tolerate being moved very well and like to be rootbound, so any disturbance to the roots will set them back quite a bit.
