I’m dedicating this rubber tree victory to Alex’s recovery from pneumonia.

Wow Miriam, that is one huge Rubber tree. Never seen one so huge. Gorgeous!!!
Glad to hear it healed itself so you didn’t loose it. What a huge loss that would have been.

It definitely came back, Miriam, with great aplomb!

Happy to hear your Rubber Plant survived afterall Miriam.I’ve had similar experiences feeling very badly when it appeared in the Spring one of my plants had succumbed to the weather only in my case being in the Northeast it was a brutal winter which caused it’s demise but then being overjoyed to spot a tiny bit of green and perhaps a tiny leaf or two poking up through the soil and realizing that tough little plant still had some life in it and had made it through afterall.

Nature should be admired. The Ficus Rubber Tree survived & it too should be admired.
The leaves are so shinny & healthy looking. it will do well – Amen !
I dedicate it to Renee Espar & hope that she too will start to mend & heal herself.

Lovely contrast of colors. The Rubber Tree is a real survivor story. It was burned to a crisp by the sun and had to be cut back to one pathetic branch. We really thought it was history, but to our delight and surprise over the course of a year it started to mend and heal itself. I’ve taken several cuttings and planted them in various spots in the garden. They are all thriving.
