Rubber Tree Plant

Anonymous added on January 17, 2014 | Answered

I have just been given a rubber tree plant, which is close to 27 years old. It was left outside in the EXTREME cold for a week and now that I have it in my possession, it is indoors in a warm office by a window. ALL the leaves have turned a dark brown and fallen off. I have removed all of them so now the tree is just tall stems. Is it still alive? What should I be doing to it/for it? It has huge sentimental value to me.

I am sorry to hear about your plant. If the stems are still alive, it will regrow its leaves. I would check the stems and if they are still alive, care for the plant as you normally would and you should see leaves start to grow in a few weeks.
