I got a cut of a plant from a co-worker about a year and a half ago.. I had no clue what the plant was, so I couldn't look up how to care for it, but it seemed to be doing fine. It started off in a water-bottle, then I transferred it to a normal pot once it had grown some roots.
I just recently had someone identify it for me, so I looked it up online to see what this kind of plant eventually looks like. I know they can get pretty huge, but all the pictures I found showed rubber plants with thick foliage. Mine looks kinda scrawny on the bottom half because the lower leaves keep turning yellow and falling off.
For a long time, I would only water it when I remembered (every couple of weeks). I always thought it was fine because when it didn't get watered, it just sat there looking the same, and when it did get watered, it gave me a new leaf. I've been trying to water it more regularly lately (once a week), so I've been getting new leaves on a more regular basis.
Like I said, it continues to grow and give me new leaves, so I know that it will fill in eventually. But what can I do to keep leaves from falling off the bottom?
Many thanks in advance!
