Leggy Rubber Plant.

June 26th, 2010 · No Comments

Leggy rubber plant the best bet is to cut the plant as you suggested and lose a central part of your stem and re-graft the top growth to the roots.The best way to do this is to make an inverted v cut a the base of the top section and a v cut in the stump, so that the two can be fitted snugly together.After binding these firmly,a strong cane will be necessary to support the doctored plant.Once the two parts have knitted together,the binding and cane can be removed,leaving you with a more compact,leafy specimen. After this operation ensure that the plant is kept out of draughts, very dark corners.Do not over water and when you do,use water at room temperature.A minimum of 13 degrees c is needed throughout the year.It prefers a relatively small pot and only when it is root- bound should it be moved into a one size larger container.
