How to clean leaf of rubber plant
What’s the difference between Tricolor and Red Ruby? Reply will be appreciated ❤️
The tricolor is a crossbred of the ruby, tineke and the Doescheri.
A microfiber dusting cloth works extremely well on the sturdy leaves.
Does anyone know if I can pinch my ficus as it’s growing straight up and I want it to branch out
Yes pinching the tip will make it branch out. Wait 1-2 months for the new branch. But if your rubber plant is more than 4 feet high, it may be best to marcot the top half. Lots of instruction videos on YouTube.
