Frustrating Ficus elastica

This is my Ficus elastica.

This is what happens when I try pruning my Ficus elastica.

Why won't it branch and become bushy? It gets lots of light. :(


  1. I'm not sure. Several of those plants when pruned here and there won't do that unless they are severely pruned back which I still wouldn't do. How long ago did you prune?

  2. I don't think they really branch well until they become HUGE trees.

  3. Pruned about a month ago. I just did a second pruning. I've read in several places that they should be pruned every two leaves or so. That way they don't get caney.


Thanks for contributing!
