How do you get a rubber plant to stand up?
Rubber Plants are not self supporting, the longer they grow the droopier they get. You can keep your rubber plant standing upright by using bamboo or dowels. I just use the leaves to hold it in place. Rubber Plants are quick growers, growing as much as 24″ in a season!
Why is my rubber plant stem drooping?
Your rubber plant is drooping because it’s not getting sufficient water. You need to provide it a good amount of water at least once every 5 days. Some other problems that can cause drooping are overwatering, lack of sunlight or nutrients, or an attack by pests and diseases.
How do you fix a droopy plant?
- Remove plant from its decorative planter and submerge the bottom of the nursery pot in a bucket filled with 2 inches of water.
- Leave the plant for a few hours or up to a full day to soak up the water.
- Within 2 to 24 hours, come back and see your plant lush and full of life!
