Q.Should I Prune Back My Rubber Tree Plant?

Brenda.Paton added on March 31, 2011 | Answered

We were moving and the tree ended up in the garage for a while with no light. The leaves started falling off big time. We finally bought our house and the plant is getting plenty of light and moisture/fertilizer, but the branches do not have a lot of leaves. Mainly at the top of the branches so the plant looks kind of weird. What can I do to bring it back?

The leaves will regrow if you give it some time, but it will look rather bare in the meantime. You can also prune it, which will force it to grow new branches and leaves. Either way will work, it just depends on how you would like it to look while it regrows. Here is some information that will help you:
