Rubber Tree in Cold Weather

Zone Zone 7 | rhondawb30643 added on January 7, 2012 | Answered

I have a very large rubber tree plant that I could not bring in my house this winter, because of its size, so I put it in the shed outside. Due to some freezing temperatures, I believe my plant was frozen, and now I don't know what to do. Did I kill it or will it come back? Please advise me on what I need to do. Thank you.

If the stems are still alive, then it should come back. This article might help with the plant being cold damaged: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/tips-for-saving-cold-damaged-plants.htm

For future reference, this article will help with pruning so you can keep the plant indoors: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/rubber-tree/prune-rubber-tree.htm
