Q.Stems Too Thin on Rubber Tree Plant
I have a fairly large rubber tree plant (about 5 feet) but the stems require support. I’d like to encourage the stems to grow thicker and stronger so that I can remove the bamboo sticks from the pot. I assume that I need to wait for spring but I’d like advice on the best method.

If the stems are thin, it means that it is not getting enough light. I would move it to a better lit window or add a supplemental light, such as a fluorescent light, nearby. That will improve the stem strength.
