So good to hear someone else that doesn't like houseplants. We inherited a 10 ft tall rubber plant. I too, chugged it in chugged it out, until one Oct. I was sick and didn't get it back in, now it's only 3 ft tall. Even leaving it out all winter didn't totally kill it Like you, I don't have the heart to totally abandoned it. At least it's a size I can handle now. Linda in N.Central AZ.
One of mine is still sitting outside on my porch. I have ignored it now for about 3 weeks. I don't know how much longer I'll have the heart to ignore it, and for the moment it's still enjoying our good weather.
Nice to hear from you, glad you got your rubber plant down to a reasonable size...now if only I could do the same!
