Rubber Tree Plants
Q.

transplanting rubber plants

Zone S7L 1C9 | Anonymous added on January 26, 2019 | Answered

I have 2 Rubber Plants potted; actually one pot contains 3 plants and the other 2. I am wanting to put all of the plants together in 1 pot if possible in order to get a fuller look. I purchased the larger plant last summer and propagated plants in the 2nd pot from it. All are doing well. Do you recommend transplanting the 5 plants into 1 pot? Thanks.

I actually do not recommend doing this. Although they will achieve a more full look, they will also be crowded. It would be best to top the largest one each year until you get the look you want. This will lead to a more overall healthy plant. Your others can be maintained in separate pots in the same fashion. Be careful or you will end up like me, and have a forest of things that you don't have room for! I have a bad habit myself of making too many copies of plants!
