Q.Problems With Rubber Tree

Anonymous added on May 15, 2011 | Answered

The bark on my rubber tree has narrowed and shriveled at the upper middle part of the tree’s trunk. All the bottom leaves have fallen off. And in the area where the narrowing is, there hasn’t been any outer bark development. It’s dark brown and not green, so I’m wondering if that’s the problem which caused the trunk to ‘catch cold’ since the plant is near an open window, but it’s never been exposed to under 55 degrees. It’s been kept out of direct sunlight and watered once every two weeks or more as to avoid root rot. Can you tell me how to revive this plant, and what the problem might be?
