Rubber Tree in Big Pot

chels4590 added on February 1, 2018 | Answered

I put my rubber tree in what was probably too large of a pot. It has been in there for around two years. The pot is about 36 inches around and 2.5 feet deep. Do you think it is possible to dig it out of the pot and put it in something a bit smaller? I'm moving soon (naturally I live in a walk up) and I don't want to break my back lugging my big guy around.

It is possible. Just make sure that the roots fit into the transport pot. These are happy being rootbound, and don't mind being in a "just fit" container.

Here is an article for more information on the plant:
