Transplanting Rubber Plant

Anonymous added on December 7, 2010 | Answered

I help care for the plants at an indoor butterfly conservatory. The conservatory is basically a greenhouse with tropical plants planted in the ground. We have a rubber plant that is getting too large for the space it is in. What is the best way to transplant all or part of the plant to a new location?

This article is about repotting, but the steps would be essentially the same: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/hpgen/learn-more-about-repotting-houseplants.htm

You may also consider pruning the plant and then starting new plants from the trimmings. These articles will help you with that:
