Problem Rubber Tree Plant

Anonymous added on May 20, 2011 | Answered

I have a large multi-branched rubber tree. One of the main branches broke off. It  was very thick, and I'm not sure what to do with it. It seems to be getting moldy inside where it broke off. Do I fill the large hole with dirt, moss ?

Do not fill the hole, but I would treat it with a fungicide. It sounds like the tree has a fungus and that was what hurt the limb. It may be spreading to the rest of the tree.
