I have a rubber tree plant which had gone up to a skylight, curled round to come back down, supported by the walls of the skylight. I was going to prune it in the spring but it has now collapsed and fallen down so I am about to cut off the bent branch. Can I regrow this two foot cutting in another pot? I have prepared a pot with top soil and compost and have rods to support the cutting but will it grow?
