One of the most effective and simplest ways to get a rubber tree to grow more branches is to behead it. Prepare a pair of garden shears, cut the rubber tree at the waist with scissors, keep the base of the branches at about 50cm, and remove all the leaves on the branches. After beheading, the rubber tree is placed in a scattered and ventilated place, and almost a month later, the rubber tree will sprout many new stems and leaves at the branches and buds, and become a potted plant with many lateral branches.
