Hi! I was wondering if there was any other way of making "babies" off my big Mama of a rubber tree, other than airlayering. I have made a few new ones by airlayering but i hate it cuz I feel like I am attacking my poor baby. Also, since i have done so, she doesn't look as pretty. She is prolly 5.5 foot tall, and about 4 foot around and kinda of scragley in places. i have had her since she was about 2 foot tall ( 1996 ). Any help would be wonderful!!!!! [angel]

Welcome to the forum Leigh! You can also take stem cuttings of your rubber plant.
