Repotting a rubber tree plant
I purchased a medium size plant yesterday that is a little top heavy but filled out. It has healthy looking full leaves, no damage of any kind, no bugs.I noticed that it tilts to the side in any position as the pot seems small for the plant size and height. It has some roots that have wrapped around the rim of the pot. I gently cut away some of these roots and also hand cleaned all the leaves both sides as it was dusty, then gave the leaves a "rinse" to remove any residual soapy water that I used with a wash cloth. Should I repot this or what? I just put it as it came into another pot, just somewhat larger without taking it out of the pot it came in. I need to know how to do this transfer without harming it.I left it out on my porch last night because I have central a.c. When should I bring it indoors as I live in Ga. and it does get somewhat cold during the fall/winter season sometimes. It has new leaves (5)coming in. I need all the info. Please! Thanks so much..... P.S. Have lots of southern light coming in.
