So I have grown this rubber tree from a tiny piece from a super large one someone gave me. I will be honest he hasn’t had the best care but he has done well and could care less. Well recently I have been trying to recoup lost time for the poor guy. So he is giant now but droopy. New growth is still going on I reported him last year and will again this year since he got so big. Watered ever two weeks about unless dried out to the touch. I been checking more often and watering him every week no that we are going into spring. I did fertilize him once this spring. Any suggestion should I repot and do more drainage in the soil. I can’t believe he would be over watered but that is what I am coming up with.

Hello! What a pretty rubber tree! According to my internet research, rubber plants do need good drainage, and recommends using a soil designed for cactus. It also mentions to prune your rubber plant just before growth begins. Also, rubber plants like to be misted. So perhaps take a mister bottle of rainwater and mist him every now and then. ;) Hope this helps.
